Sounds like the Russian mob has its fingers in this one. Conflict diamonds, professional arms dealers, Russian weapons.

Very likely. Somebody tipped off the BBC. My guess is a traitor in the Russian FSB. They only got involved toward the end. An America rat or Brit would have tipped the media off or warned the perps away at the start. So the mob lost one guy. He's old and doesn't matter.

Hey Sherm !
I think they might have had their fingers in another bit of nasty business we've discussed: namely the "liberation" of certain materials from one of our labs.
A lot of those boyos are ex-KGB.

Consider that "Russian mob" in United States consists of former soviet jews and decendants. Ethnic russians are few in so called "russian mob".
I know that in US everyone from former Soviet Union is "russian" but it is not correct. They are "soviet" not "russian".
