Earlier it was reported that in the criminal case of bribe’s extortion by the Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukaev 8 new defendants may appear.

The United States is considering two lawsuits against the "Russian mafia" at the same time; one is the criminal syndicate of the thief in law Razhden Shulaya and the other one is a Brighton Beach gang with an exaggerated name Vory v zakone ("Thieves in law"), although there are no actual thieves in law among the members. Reports from the court hearings tell us something about the relationship between the immigrant gangsters.
