Its last seven reports are about Transnistria.
The mother company is in fact connecting two major episodes of the recent history of Russian mafia: the money laundry case involving the former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko and another money laundry case involving the Bank of New York. ICS Ltd was used both by Lazarenko's network as well as by Peter Berlin's network from the Bank of New York, to laundry large amounts of money. In the case of Lazarenko there were 100 million dollars, while Peter Berlin got to laundry billions of dollars from Russian mafia groups, especially from the Semion Mogilevich group, as well as from the Moscow group Solntsevo.

In fact if you know who Yulia Timoshenko is (Yuschenko's key ally during the Orange revolution, and a major political figure head in pro-Western Ukraine), you can do some easy research on her. She has been credibly accused on several occasions of high profile bribery, and illegal activities, as well as ties with less-than-legal figures. However she had political immunity, thanks to some loop holes. She is still known by some in Ukraine as a "criminal", but Yuschenko and his American and European buddies don't mind much do they?

Apparently, Igor Smirnov is running for a fourth term as "President" of Transnistria.
