A masked assault team headed by Azarau, the deputy head of the Main Organized Crime Department, detained Dankoff Club owner Yury Dankov some minutes ago.

“They wrote down my passport data and allowed me to go. They are now searching Dankov's office. They tried to take away my phone after a call to journalists,” Timafei says.
