The Deputy Chief of Bali Criminal Investigation Bureau, AKBP Suratno, confirmed that two out of 4 suspects involved in the assault and kidnapping of a Ukrainian man named Oleg Zheinov had surrendered themselves to the police department.

“The two suspects with initials AT from Russia and ID from Ukraine are already detained,” Suratno said during a press conference on Friday (4/2).

The incident can be traced back to when a Russian national named Volodymyr Kaminsky and his girlfriend V arrived in Bali for a vacation. They rented a motorbike from an Indonesian woman named Cenly Eleunora Musa and her Ukrainian boyfriend, Oleg, on December 31, 2021.

The motorbike was stolen the following day from the parking area of the villa where Volodymyr stayed. Upon knowing this, Oleg, Cenly, and two of their friends went to Volodymyr’s villa in Tibubeneng to ask him to take responsibility.

As the situation escalated, Volodymyr called his friend and asked him to call the police. Instead of calling the police, his friend had sent four expats to the villa with a car.

They assaulted Oleg and Cenly and dragged them into the car. After a while, the four expats took them back to the villa and left the location.

The other two expats involved in the incident are still in hiding. Meanwhile, these two men who have surrendered themselves to us are also considered as witnesses,” AKBP Suratno concluded.

Oleg, Volodymyr, AT, and ID are currently detained at the immigration detention house, as they would soon be deported for violating Article 75 of Law Number 6 of 2011 concerning Immigration.

Theft, extortion, fraud, drug dealing, ATM skimming and general unruly behaviour. No wonder Russians and Ukrainians have a bad reputation.

These people entered Bali on vacation?? How's that even possible when business visas are what's available in the previous months.

The bureaucratic process to obtain business visa and a legitimate excuse to travel to Indonesia during Covid. Many have been trying to travel to Indonesia with a valid reason and some to no avail. And here there are questionable folks that got in.That's some monkey business alright.

Russians and Ukrainians have brought their culture of criminality and violence to Bali, this won’t end well. Indonesian officials are acting like children in this regard and have no idea how pervasive the evil gangs become after arrival.

Wow surprise surprise more Eastern Europeans and Russians involved in crime. It is very simple Bali is a place to come relax and enjoy the fact that you are no longer in your own crime ridden country. Now is the time for change. Indonesians are the most beautiful people in the world. Indonesia does not need dirt bags flighting half way around the to act in the same criminal manner as they would in their own S-Hole countries. Good black ball these dirt bags so they can go back home and tell there dirt bag friends not to come to Indonesia.
