MAGAS, January 28. /TASS/. An inter-regional channel of illicit arms trade has been uncovered in Ingushetia, in Russia’s North Caucasus, the press service of the regional Federal Security Service (FSB) has said.
"This was the result of measures on uncovering and curbing the channels of illicit arms trade and the means of carrying out terrorist attacks," a spokesperson said. The effort was conducted in cooperation with Russia’s Interior Ministry in the North Caucasus federal district and Russia’s Interior Ministry in Ingushetia.
During the operation, the activity of an inter-regional criminal group consisting of seven members was curbed. The group had operated in the North Caucasus since December 2014.
Two members of the group were caught red-handed on Wednesday when attempting to sell a Makarov pistol. Investigators later found a workshop used for manufacturing and modernizing firearms.
A total of 37 pieces of firearms, including 33 guns, two rifles, one carbine, ten suppressors and more than 500 rounds of ammunition of various caliber were found in the operation.
