False-coiners from North Caucasus arrested in Moscow
The police have detained six members of an ethnic gang.
The Moscow police and FSB officers detained six natives from the North Caucasus. Men were arrested on suspicion of circulating counterfeit banknotes of 5 thousand rubles. They were charged with the manufacture and circulating of counterfeit money (part 2 of Art. 35, part 1 of Art. 186 of the Criminal Code), said the press service of the Moscow’s Central Board.
Law enforcers have found that the organized ethnic criminal group uttered false bills worth over 680 thousand rubles.

According to the Russian MIA’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, the detention of Russian woman Maria Butina in the US was specifically timed to coincide with the summit of Putin and Trump in order to minimize the effect of the presidents’ meeting.
