Izhevsk police detain gang of extortionists
For the commission of especially grave crimes, the leader of the organized crime group and its members face up to 15 years of the colony.
Udmurtia suppressed the activity of an organized criminal group. According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Udmurtia, its members are suspected of extorting a large sum from one of the entrepreneurs of Izhevsk. It is likely that there are more victims, in connection with which law enforcement officers are trying to find out what crimes were committed by the gang.
The leader and active participants of the criminal group were detained by officers of the FSB together with operatives of UEBiPK of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Udmurtia and soldiers of Rosgvardiya.
With respect to the detainees, a criminal case was initiated under part 3 of Art. 163 of the Criminal Code (Extortion committed by a group). Now they are in custody. The investigation of the criminal case continues. The article provides for punishment in the form of imprisonment from 7 to 15 years.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
