MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) has curbed activity of a group that organized illicit trade of weapons and explosives in the country’s northwest, the FSB public relations center said on Wednesday.
“The FSB together with the Main criminal investigation department of Russia’s Interior Ministry curbed the activity of a criminal group involved in organizing a channel of illegal trade of fire-arms, ammunition, explosives and explosive devices on the territory of the Northwestern federal district,” the FSB said.
In mid-January 2015, a criminal boss and nine accomplices were caught red-handed while selling weapons in the Russian city of Velikiye Luki, in the Pskov region.
