Russian Police Arrest Arms Smuggler on South Ossetian Border

MOSCOW, February 1 (RIA Novosti) – Russian law enforcement officials arrested a resident of Russia’s republic of North Ossetia suspected of smuggling firearms from the neighboring South Ossetia, the republic’s Interior Ministry said on Friday.

The police were tipped off about the illegal activities of the suspected arms smuggler, whose identity has not been disclosed, in July last year.

“Over six months, police and FSB operatives registered several instances when the suspect illegally sold weapons smuggled from South Ossetia,” the ministry said in a statement.

Moscow Police Bust $1.6 Mln Medicine Scam Aimed at Elderly

MOSCOW, February 1 (RIA Novosti) – Moscow police have detained and charged four suspects from Russia and Ukraine accused of defrauding hundreds of elderly customers of tens of millions of rubles by selling them dietary supplements under the guise of costly pharmaceuticals, city police said Friday.

“According to preliminary data, at least 2,000 people fell victim” to the alleged scam, police said, adding their initial estimate of the “damage” was about 50 million rubles (just over $1.6 million).

The suspected con artists – who were charged on Thursday with fraud – placed advertisements in local media for a non-existent medical center, according to Moscow’s main police directorate. The ruse attracted mostly senior citizens.

‘Russian mafia’ carves ‘thief’ on kidnapped Irish tycoon’s forehead over debts

An Irish real estate tycoon suddenly released after eight months being held hostage has accused Russian mafia and the IRA of kidnapping, torturing and carving "thief" on his forehead over the debts he owes to the criminals.

Kevin McGeever appeared to have the word “thief” carved into his forehead. During interviews with the police, the 68-year-old revealed that he was seized and kept in a “darkened container” because of his debt to Russian gangsters and the Irish Republican Army, the Irish Daily Mail reported.*

Mr McGeever told the detectives that he was kidnapped from the garden of his £2.5million mansion by three masked men. The abductors had demanded a ransom but he did not know if it was delivered.

McGeever also told the officers that his captors gave him a mobile phone when he was freed and told him to keep it with him at all times.

MOSCOW, February 4 (RIA Novosti) – A historic Moscow steam-bath building has been demolished without permission by developers, a heritage preservation group said.


A contractor company, identified by the city administration as Elit Massiv, began unauthorized demolition work at the site of the Mozhaiskiye Bani (or Mozhaisk Saunas) in western Moscow late last month, despite an order from city inspectors to stop, and a fine of 200,000 rubles ($6,680), the Arkhnadzor preservation group said in a statement released on Saturday.

FC to discuss single emergency-call phone number, def order

MOSCOW, February 6 (Itar-Tass) - The Federation Council (FC) upper house of the Russian parliament holds a plenary meeting here on Wednesday to consider a number of new bills, discuss the results of the APPF session in Vladivostok, and hear a report by Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin during a Government Hour quesion-and-answer session.

The report to be made by Rogozing, who is also heading the Military Industrial Commission, will be devoted to the results of implementation of the State-placed defence order in 2012. The discussion of the matter will be held in a closed-door mode. "It is planned to take note of the information to be presented," says a respective item of the agenda.

One of the bills to be examined on Wednesday concerns a more precise definition of the powers of the RF regional government bodies in the establishment and operation of a system ensuring the dialing of a single phone number, 112, to call in emergency response services.

Russian Cult Leader Convicted of Rape

NOVOSIBIRSK, February 7 (RIA Novosti) - The leader and founder of one of Russia’s largest religious cults was sentenced on Thursday to 11 years in prison by a Siberian court for sex abuse against his followers.

Ashram Shambala leader Konstantin Rudnev, who started his cult back in 1989, was convicted in a closed trial of rape, sexual assault, drug trafficking and creating a religious organization infringing on people's personalities and rights.

Russian media reports put the number of his followers at around 30,000, but only 16 of them were prosecution witnesses at the trial. His sprawling network of "ashrams," or small communities living in the same house or apartment, had branches in more than 20 major Russian cities, as well as Denmark, Greece and Ukraine.

Half of criminals wanted in Russia extradited last year

MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) - In 2012 a total of 48 criminals wanted by Interpol were extradited to Russia, a representative of the Central National Bureau of Interpol under the Russian Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass on Thursday.

Last year a total of 90 people were detained abroad on Russian warrants, including 48 people accused of crimes in Russia who were detained in foreign countries and extradited to Russia, the source said.

The geography of the countries which extradite criminals on the Russian warrants has broadened. Last year Ghana, Cambodia, Egypt, the Dominican Republic made the extraditions on Russian warrants for the first time, the source said.

GRU retired Colonel Kvachkov found guilty

MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) – The Moscow City Court on Friday recognised retired Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff (GRU) guilty of attempted organisation of an armed rebellion to overthrow the Russian government, Judge Pavel Melekhin stated during sentencing. Kvachkov was also found guilty of recruiting individuals for the participation in the rebellion.

The retired colonel and the second defendant in the case, Alexander Kiselyov, were charged with an attempt to organise an armed rebellion to overthrow Russia’s Constitutional Order.

During the sides’ pleading in court, the prosecutor demanded that Kvachkov be sentenced to 14 years in a maximum security penitentiary, and Alexander Kiselyov, the second defendant, to 12 years, and have their freedom restricted for two years after serving their sentences. The prosecutor also demanded that the defendants be stripped of their military rank. He insisted that their guilt had been fully proven.

Putin Slams Police Over Unsolved Crimes

MOSCOW, February 8 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized Russia’s Interior Ministry on Friday, saying 45 percent of crimes in the country are left unsolved.

“In total, almost 45 percent of crimes (44.5 percent) remain unsolved. Practically each second [crime]. This is an obvious and evident fact, showing that the work of law enforcement agencies is not efficient enough,” Putin said at an annual Interior Ministry meeting on Friday.

Although the number of crimes registered in the country fell by 4.3 percent last year, statistics showed however that the number of unsolved crimes increased, Putin said.
