In the Stavropol region, police has detained leaders of a gang of extortionists.
Law enforcement bodies of the Stavropol region have conducted a special operation to detain the leaders of an organized crime group involved in extortion.
According to the MIA General Administration for the North Caucasus, the arrest operation against the OCG leaders was held simultaneously in three cities: Pyatigorsk, Georgievsk, and Novopavlovsk. As a result of the special operation, the takedown team managed to detain four men, all of whom are suspected of organizing a criminal community.
As the law enforcers report, the detainees are the leaders of a gang that dealt with extortion of money from local businessmen. At the same time, they used to protect the businessmen from their own criminals.
"The detainees are involved in a series of large-scale extortion episodes," the police reports.
The detention and search of the suspects' place of residence has revealed weapons, ammunition, drugs, and false documents of various power structures.
Three of the detainees have been arrested and placed in jail.
Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg has repaid loans in the amount of $1 billion taken from the Western banks. Earlier, his Renova Group had received state support from Promsvyazbank. Renova representatives say they have repaid the loan with the company’s own funds.
Federation Council member Vadim Nikolaev whose son had gotten into a fight strongly suggested that the other kids and their parents dropped beating charges, making it clear that he had already been to prosecutors and the ICR and “gotten it all dealt with.”
The businessman agreed to exchange the assets of Liwet Holding, through which Vekselberg’s company owned the shares of high-tech European concerns, for the assets of his partners Evgeny Olkhovik and Vladimir Kremer.
