Today the Russian MVD and FSB have announced the arrest of eight cybercriminals who have stolen more than 60 million rubles ($2 million USD) from at least ninety victim bank accounts in the charges documented in this case.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs (Ministerstvo Vnutrennikh Del or Министерство внутренних дел) better known as the MVD has a computer crimes unit known as "Department K". In this case they worked together with the Russian Federal Security Service's Center for Information Security. (The Federal Security Service, or FSB for Federal'naya sluzhba bezopasnosti, Федеральная служба безопасности is the equivalent to the FBI in the United States.)
