I know this should probably be seen as scandalous but it didn't really surprise me in any way.

"A decorated Ukrainian general was arrested last week in Romania along with two other men suspected of being part of an organized cybercrime gang that laundered at least $1.4 million stolen from U.S. and Italian firms.

Apprehended in Iasi, Romania last week were Matei Vitalie, 37, of Moldova; Konstantin Ossipov, a 42-year-old Israeli citizen; and 54-year-old Valeriu Gaichuk, a Ukrainian general who, according to his Facebook page, once studied at Florida International University in Miami."
