Khloponin: Bandits in the Caucasus receive $ 30 million a year from abroad

2012-06-15 14:40

Bandits in the North Caucasus are receiving $ 30 million a year from abroad to finance the underworld gangs, the Russian president's envoy to the region Alexander Khloponin said.


"Of course, the North Caucasus is a kind of bargaining chip to solve the geopolitical problems and, of course, we have certain information that some funding (underworld gangs) comes from the territory of neighboring states, but we cannot say this is a key issue", Khloponin said.

He noted that according to experts, this funding "does not exceed 20-30 million dollars". "There are some financing of not only the gangs, but some non-governmental organizations that are not always engaged in the human rights protection ", Khloponin said.

At the same time, he does not deny that bandits get significant sums from the shadow economy. "But we need to look at the figures that we have in the shadow economy. We do not get 9 billion rubles from the VAT and 11 billion rubles from taxes on alcohol; why should we look for something abroad, if we can flash drives with the threats and collect the money", the official said.

"Where there are non-transparent rules for business, there will always be crime", Khloponin said.
