The Washington Post - - Internatio­nal -

Po­lice charged a re­puted in­ter­na­tional crime boss with tax eva­sion, pur­su­ing pros­e­cu­tion of a man wanted in the United States and sus­pected of play­ing a key role in Rus­sia’s lu­cra­tive nat­u­ral gas trade with Europe. Se­myon Mogile­vich, long sought by the FBI, lived near Moscow un­til his ar­rest last week out­side the city’s World Trade Cen­ter.

U.S. of­fi­cials have ac­cused Mogile­vich, 61, a Ukrainian-born Rus­sian cit­i­zen, of run­ning an or­ga­nized crime ring.
