The FSB detained police officers in Magnitogorsk who were extorting money from a Russian extorting 1.3 million rubles from a Russian. This was announced on Wednesday, November 24, by the regional department of the Investigative Committee of Russia (TFR).
According to the investigation, in November Russian police threatened a resident of Magnitogorsk with initiating a case against him under Article 137 (“Illegal collection of information about private life “) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, if he does not give them the required amount of money.
