“The General Investigation Administration of the Russian MIA General Administration for Moscow brought the final charge against the men involved in money extortion from the owner of a restaurant located on Rochdelskaya Street in Moscow,” said the Russian MIA official representative Irina Volk.

The authorities initiated a criminal case on that fact based on essential elements of a crime stipulated by Article 163 “Extortion” of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
“Criminal liability was imposed on 14 persons. By now, the final charge with the crime has been filed against all the offenders,” added Irina Volk.
