Zahar Knyazevich Kalashov is believed to have directed a criminal network that allegedly laundered money from criminal activities in the former Soviet Union by investing in real estate, luxury cars, and other assets in Spain.


A year ago, Spanish police arrested 20 suspected Russian and Georgian gang members.
