Netherlands law enforcement agencies arrested two citizens of Russia. Among them, as it became known "Fontanka" well-known figure eSports Dmitry Smilyanets (known online as Dima ddd1ms bold), the owner and leader of "Moskow Five", which is curated from March of this year, is the head of "VTB-development," Sergei Matvienko, son of the Speaker of the Federation Council. The essence of the charges has not yet disclosed, but there is reason to believe that the detention of Russian citizens is part of a hands-free operation of the FBI Cyber ​​Crime, in which a few days earlier had been arrested 24 suspects in 13 countries around the world.

The fact that two citizens of Russia, from Moscow, Dmitry and Vladimir Smilyanets Drinkman, June 28, were arrested in Amsterdam at the request of the FBI, became known only after a week of events. According to "Fontanka" arrest Smilyantsa Drinkmana and is a continuation of large-scale campaign to combat cyber crime, which the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office was told on June 26, calling it "the biggest in the history of the joint operation of the international" law enforcement agencies.

Two years, four continents and 205 million

According to the American intelligence services, the operation lasted for two years on four continents. To identify cyberhawks, steal personal information and web users, and money from the accounts of credit and debit cards, the FBI has created a "phishing" site Carder Profit, which has attracted experienced "carders." All information shared at the forum and crooks in their own ways, carefully studied by the agents.

By bringing the two years comprehensive data on how cyber criminals and preparing evidence, the FBI in conjunction with the special services of other countries attacked. In one day 24 people were arrested. 11 suspects (two of them minors) were arrested in the U.S., 6 people - in the UK, two in Bosnia, one by one - in Bulgaria, Norway and Germany. A little later one more person has been arrested in Italy and Japan. The four suspects, who are also charged, left at liberty pending trial. During the operation was prevented theft of 205 million dollars with 411,000 credit cards.

In a press release distributed by the FBI, no mention of Russia and Russian citizens, and, judging from the names of those arrested, among them, probably not coming from the former Soviet Union. In an interview, however, FBI spokesman mentioned that in the criminal business was involved hotel company Wyndham Wordwide, through which leaked bank card numbers by e-mail address registered in Russia.

However, as it became known "Fontanka" from relatives and Smilyantsa Drinkmana, the prosecution believes that the Russians detained in Amsterdam is also involved in kibermoshennichestvam and arrested them as part of the operation. Other relatives do not give comments, referring to the instructions received from the lawyers.
