FSB Raids East Line

The office of East Line airways was raided Tuesday as part of a criminal investigation launched by the Prosecutor General’s Office. The airline is charged with transporting contraband weapons and drugs, Interfax reported.

East Line is part of the group of the same name, which manages Domodedovo Airport outside Moscow, as well as a number of enterprises connected with the airport.

The Federal Security Service is conducting an investigation "regarding the discovery of a large consignment of contraband goods seized in the airport of the city of Kogalim [in western Siberia]," Interfax reported the FSB’s press service as saying.

East Line denies the charges.
