More than 400 organized criminal groups with a total strength of over 10,000 are currently active in Russia
More than 400 organized criminal groups with a total strength of over 10,000 are currently active in Russia, an high-ranking Interior Ministry official said Tuesday. Police Major General Alexander Yelin, deputy head of the ministry's anti-organized crime department, said: "Organized criminal units are active in each part of the Russian Federation, numbering over 400." Yelin said some city-planning companies were under the control of criminal groups, adding that his department had contributed to disbanding and ending the activities of several interregional criminal groups in the Saratov, Rostov and Tula regions in European Russia. He said the department was successfully fighting two other criminal groups in the Russia's Far East, and the Sverdlovsk Region in the Urals. Yelin said 80 crime chiefs had been held criminally accountable during 2005.
