WikiLeaks on Belarus, Russia and Chechnya

Monday, December 6
In one of the documents revealed by WikiLeaks on December 1 there appears a statement by Spanish prosecutor Jose Gonsalez in which he asserts that Belarus, Russia and Chechnya are practically Mafioso entities. According to the prosecutor, in these states it is impossible to differentiate the activities of those countries’ governments from the activities of organised criminal groups. The statement was made by Gonsalez on January 13 this year during a session of the Spanish-American working group on combating terrorism and organised crime. WikiLeaks reports that the information was sent by the US embassy in Madrid to the US government with the comment that the remarks were deep and valuable since the author had knowledge of the Euro-Asian mafia.
