Moscow police capture men who kidnapped woman to get ransom
Four men demanded 500.000 rubles from the victim’s husband.
A group of men in Moscow’s Domodedovo abducted a woman in a courtyard of an apartment building and demanded a 500.000-ruble ransom ($7.600) from her husband. The press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs reports the news.
The alarmed man hastened to go to the police and told them about the abduction. All further developments were unfolding under the law enforcers’ control.
The husband agreed on a meeting with the bandits in a Podolsk cafe. There, he gave part of the amount to one of the abductors, 420.000 rubles, after which the abductor was detained. It was a 23-year-old native of Central Asia.
He agreed to cooperate with the police and informed his accomplices that he had received the ransom, so the woman was released.
Then, the other perpetrators were detained at a shopping center located at 24 km of the Ring Road. They were three men aged 24 to 32. During a search, police seized a false state license plate they had used for conspiracy, mobile phones, SIM cards, and bank cards.

Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
