FSB nabs a drug trafficking gang from Central Asia
The criminal group was arrested red-handed.
The FSB detained a gang of drug traffickers from Central Asia. It supplied drugs to Russia from Central Asia. 43 kg of heroin were withdrawn from circulation, the agency’s website says.
Several members of the gang were detained on suspicion of involvement in the criminal scheme; they are citizens of different states. The sting operation was carried out in the Moscow region. The gang was handing the stuff in the woods at night when it was taken red-handed.
A criminal case has been initiated against the detainees; they are in a detention center now. No additional details have been reported yet.
Seventeen Russian Governors are facing criminal prosecution for bribe-taking. The rest of them may be jailed any time for exceedance of official powers. At least, Nezygar (@russica2) Telegram channel claims so citing an unidentified source in the law enforcement structures. However, according to that source, it is currently prohibited to prosecute top-level officials. In 2018, the operatives had only searched offices of Vice Governors or Deputy Ministers – not their bosses. The CrimeRussia found out what supreme functionaries are on the hook of the law enforcement authorities and may be immediately indicted if the President orders so.
