Russian laundered $ 4 billion through bitcoins

On July 25, a citizen of the Russian Federation was detained in Thessaloniki, who for 6 years led a group of attackers who laundered money through bitcoin. The arrest occurred on the order of the US Department of Justice.

According to RBC, a 38-year-old man has long been wanted by US authorities. He was suspected of illegal financial fraud. At the moment, the name of the suspect is unknown, as well as the details of the capture operation.

Since 2011, the Russian was engaged in criminal activities. For more than 6 years, the group’s members pulled out about $ 4 billion from the shadows. According to the Greek police, law enforcement officers took the organization’s "brain". Attackers owned one of the largest e-crime sites.
