The Ministry of Internal Affairs clamps down on ethnic crime groups. On Thursday, about 100 members of ethnic criminal communities were detained in Balashikha, Moscow region. Today it became known that the Moscow Criminal Investigation will have a new department for combating organized crime groups from Central Asia.
A source in law enforcement agencies told to Rosbalt that all of today’s Moscow Criminal Investigation Department structure transformations are aimed at enhancing the work of the operations staff to combat criminal elements from Central Asia.
At the moment, there is only a general ethnic department at the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, the employees of which are fighting criminality with both Asian and Caucasian roots.
However, the incident at the Khovanskoye cemetery has shown that a general department is not enough. It is lacking employees for dealing with criminal elements from the regions of the Caucasus and Central Asia.
Thus, due to the structural changes, there will be a separate Central Asia and Caucasus department, and the total number of operations officers will increase.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
