Russian President Vladimir Putin is in his fourth year as head of the Federal Security Service.
He is also the most powerful man in Russia and, unlike many of his predecessors, has not resigned in the face of mass protests.
He has not been convicted of any crime.
But he has been accused of orchestrating an organized crime gang that has seized and illegally seized tens of millions of dollars from a Ukrainian financial institution.
He denies it.
In the United States, the investigation into his crimes is still in its early stages.
It has so far uncovered only two people who were part of the gang.
The first is Alexander Perepilichny, a former KGB spy and a member of the criminal organization, Black Sea Mafia.
The second is Alexander Bortnikov, a Ukrainian businessman who was involved in the illegal takeover.
In August 2018, Bortnikys wife was found dead in a Moscow hotel.
His mother and brother were arrested and charged with murder.
But a Russian court has ordered them released.
In a statement on Thursday, Russia’s Justice Ministry said that the two were the victims of a conspiracy involving “a criminal organization with links to a criminal organization and organized crime syndicates, whose members have been indicted by the Russian Federation Criminal Investigative Committee.”
Bortnickys wife had been taken to a hospital in November 2018 and died from a gunshot wound to the head, the ministry said.
The two were arrested in February and March and were taken to Moscow.
In February 2019, they were charged with the murders of Alexander Perepsyuk, who was found stabbed to death in his Moscow apartment, and Alexander Bontyuk.
Both men were accused of stealing money from a Russian bank, and the case was closed in July 2019.
Bontiyuk was also charged with illegally seizing the assets of a Ukrainian industrial group, which was being run by a Ukrainian citizen and his son.
The Ukrainian man, who has since been granted citizenship, is the sole defendant in the case, the Justice Ministry statement said.
In an interview with the Associated Press in January, the Russian attorney general, Vitaly Skvortsov, said that investigators have traced the suspects’ assets to Ukraine, Russia and the United Kingdom.
The suspects have been detained in Russia, but Skvortsons statement did not mention what those countries are.
Skvorsov also said that Russian authorities have recovered more than $7 billion from the Black Sea mafia.
He did not elaborate on what exactly that was.
The Russian government has repeatedly denied any involvement in the Ukrainian takeover of Crimea.
Russian President Vladislav Surkov has denied any role in any of the crime.
On March 23, 2018, a group of protesters took to the streets of Moscow demanding the resignation of President Vladimir V. Putin.
The protesters carried placards that read, “Vladimir Putin, you’re guilty,” and that the Russian leader should be jailed.
They also called for the arrest of Putin and other top officials, including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who is in charge of the security services.
The protests quickly turned violent, with at least two people killed.
Putin has denied involvement in any wrongdoing.
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that Putin was not involved in any crimes.
In addition to the two suspects, Russia has arrested more than 30 other people who have ties to the Black Shell mafia.
The group is also linked to other crimes including murder, smuggling and theft.
Some of the most notorious members of the Black Watch include former KGB officer Viktor Belan, a senior intelligence officer in Russia’s Federal Security Agency, and a former head of Russia’s military intelligence.
A spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee, a branch of Russia ‘s security services, said investigators have been able to establish that Belan and other former Black Shell members are involved in a criminal conspiracy to steal $300 million from the Ukrainian bank Sberbank, the countrys largest.
Belan has also been linked to an alleged crime ring involving the illegal seizure of the assets belonging to the Russian industrial group KVIC, which is based in Ukraine.
The Investigative Committee has said it is working to establish a “whole list of the accused members” in the investigation.
According to the Justice Department, investigators have arrested at least seven members of KVICT, including Belan.
A former Russian police officer, Alexei Khabarov, is also in jail, and he has said that he is a “serial criminal” and a “puppet of Russian organized crime.”
In May 2018, the Investigative Committee said it had opened an investigation into alleged criminal activity by the Black Shadow Group, an organized criminal group, the second-largest of its kind in Russia.
In July 2018, Khabakov was indicted on federal charges in the U.S. for allegedly conspiring with a Russian gang to steal about $5.5 million from a bank in Texas. Khabavs
