Seems like Mogilevich tried to make a deal with the US. He would provide intelligence on Islamist terrorism in return for getting off the hook in regards to his legal problems in the US. Federal prosecutors apparently rejected the offer...


Assassination Jokes, Anthrax Spores, and Russian Mobsters


11/13/07


Mr. Mogilevich would provide the U.S. with intelligence on Islamist terrorism if prosecutors opened negotiations to resolve his legal problems in the U.S. Federal prosecutors rejected that offer, lawyers and others familiar with the matter said. ...

The Mogilevich talks were brokered by a prominent Washington security expert named Neil C. Livingstone, who was briefly in the news during the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal for his work on terrorism issues with White House aide Oliver North.

He declined to discuss the Mogilevich talks, other than to say they involved “very sensitive issues.”

Thats a hell of a catch Hellmutt.

What are the chances of him telling the truth though?

Do you think he really has the right "goods" to trade to keep him free and alive?

It seems like he might get up to 6 years for the current charges against him, if he is found guilty. The problem is that the hard-core stuff he is suspected of, is hard to prove. He is too powerful. He has moles in different security services around the world as well. This makes him not only extremely dangerous, but he also get tipped off each time someone is planning some kind of action against him.

According to danish mainstream media, "a Russia mafia war" is going on in Denmark as well. Vladimir Nekrasov apparently tried to hire a Danish detective bureau to locate two Russian businessmen in Denmark. It is said that the Russian businessmen has stolen a lot of cash from someone, and they are supposedly at risk of getting assassinated in Denmark. Vladimir Nekrasov was arrested together with Mogilevich...

I wonder...

Do you think this guy could have something on the Alexander Litvitnenko case?

Theres alot of speculation that was a KGB hit, but it may have been mafia related? He was poisoned with a radioactive material.

Indeed. In fact, I've suggested that it could've been him. I found an old post here.


It's interesting that both Mogilevich and Igor Smirnov, who both used to be supported by Moscow, now seems to have lost support from Moscow. And why did they lose support from Moscow? I don't know, but this article quoted below hints about one possible motive for why Smirnov may have lost support from Moscow. And since Siva is also involved with this stuff...


Russia’s Got a Substitute for Transdniestria Leader


First, Moscow did not forget how Russian aid for the area in 2006 was spent on salaries for functionaries, national security officials and the army. Second, Moscow still wants to know what happened to $1 billion that Transdniestrian authorities collected from people for Russian gas but did not pay it to Russia.

Mogilevich won't be extradited to the US as he is a Russian citizen. So it won't happen unless he lost his Russian citizenship somehow. They have also arrested his ex-wife for some reason. Perhaps they'll use her to challenge his Russian citizenship, so they can extradite him to the US? That's what I've heard, but I don't know the details.



ITAR-TASS: Russia has no intention to extradite Shnaider to US - official


30.01.2008


The official added that the Russian law enforcers had no intention of extraditing Mogilevich to the United States.

“A request to this effect has been received from the American side. But Semion Mogilevich is a Russian citizen and we have no intention of extraditing him,” the official said.

If he got a green card through her, technically they could try and argue the case that he has citizenship. Would be a looooong stretch but then its all about technicalities

Mogilevich Experiencing Breathing Problems

The arrest of Mogilevich ("Sergey Shnaider") was apparently done by the Russian Interior Ministry (MVD).


Kyiv Post: Why Russia arrested Mogilevich


On the evening of Jan. 24, 43 heavily armed Russian Interior Ministry (MVD) storm troopers dressed in black suddenly jumped out of vehicles in the center of Moscow and apprehended 47-year-old Vladimir Nekrasov, the owner of Russia’s second-largest perfume retailer “Arbat Prestige.” They threw him to the ground, searched him for weapons and then led him away. Soon afterwards, the same MVD contingent arrested 61-year-old, 5’6” tall, 290-pound “Sergey Shnaider” and escorted him into a waiting police SUV.

[---]

With the appointment of Yulia Tymoshenko, a long-time foe of RUE, as Ukrainian prime minister, the Kremlin did not want to be placed in the uncomfortable position of being seen as bending to her demand that RUE be shut down and decided to go after Seva, Arbat Prestige – and ultimately Firtash.

Here's a video from RussiaToday about Mogilevich's arrest.





He has more than a dozen names and is reputed to be the godfather of the Russian Mafia. For 15 years Semen Mogilevich has played a cat and mouse game with the world's intelligence services.

It is said that Nekrasov had $20 million stolen from him by "someone in Denmark"...


IZO


Vladimir Nekrasov was apparently swindled recently out of $20 million by business partners aka "Russian gangsters" in Denmark (Moskovskii Komsomolets - Murmansk, in Russian). On the same page, journalist Yuliya Latynina suggests a still fuzzier version of the Nekrasov-Mogilevich arrests than any yet: that Nekrasov was not the target

This is interesting.


A Dead End?


Earlier in the week the local Moscow police arrested reputed mobster Semyon Mogilevich in an operation that is seen as an attempt by Medvedev's to fire a shot across the bow of the siloviki (the circle of former intelligence and security services personnel) within the Putin Kremlin. Local city police units were used in the arrest as the Federal Security Service or other law enforcement bodies (all controlled by the siloviki) would likely have tipped Mogilevich. His arrest is part of a power struggle between them and Medvedev's faction over control of the Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom.

From page 2:


Interestingly, China is referred to in the article as "Podnebesnaya," which is an abbreviation of a common name used by Russians when they refer to China. It means "the subheavenly empire." This is almost a Russian variant on the English-language nickname for China, "The Middle Kingdom," but the complete Russian phrase for China of Podnebesnaya Imperia is closer to the Chinese term Tianxia, which means "under heaven." This phrase has long been used in political writing dating back to when the country was ruled by an emperor. According to this line of thought, the emperor was looked upon as the political leader of the entire world and not just China itself.

[---]

This leaves a difficult decision in the hands of Russia's next president. Does he allow China access to the most sophisticated and latest defense technology available and gamble that it will never be used against Moscow, or does he bar any such orders from China in the interests of national security.

What will Medvedev do...?

FARC + Mogilevich = dirty bomb?

FARC wanted to buy from Mogilevich, uranium to make a dirty bomb. This article (incidentally published on the day of Viktor Bout's arrest allegedly for trying to sell arms to FARC!) also mentions Mogilevich's connections to Al Qaeda...


Brits: FARC sought uranium in Bucharest


March 06, 2008


Foreign intelligence agents for Britain have established that Raul Reyes, who commanded the narco-revolutionary group FARC but was killed in a recent bombing raid at his headquarters in Ecuador, made a secret visit to a suspected crime ring in Bucharest, Romania's capital, to negotiate the purchase of sufficient uranium to build a dirty bomb.

[---]

It was the connection between al-Qaida and the Rising Sun which alerted MI6 officers stationed in Bucharest that FARC was prepared to buy "a substantial amount of uranium suitable to make a dirty bomb," confirmed a London intelligence source.

Here's a different source to the story about FARC's deal with Mogilevich to buy uranium for a dirty bomb.


ZIUA: Romania swarms with terrorists


11 martie 2008


at the beginning of 2008 he had been to Bucharest negotiating to buy a certain amount of uranium from a lieutenant of the Ukrainian criminal Semyon Yukovich Mogilevich

[---]

Ever since the Soviet Union dismembered, the group headed by Mogilevich has been in collaboration with the Al-Qaeda, according to the MI6 report invoked by the Irish journalist. This is the connection that alerted MI6 officials in Bucharest. (...)

Such information unveiled by the Colombian press together with the fact that MI6 officials in Bucharest were aware that the Revolutionary Armed Forces in Colombia were ready to buy a "considerarable amount of uranium to make a dirty bomb", as well as the Colombian vice president's statement that in Reyes's computer there was data that the group was having talks about getting radioactive material show a possibility that Reyes was watched while in Bucharest, just as Viktor Bout was.
