Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

In August 1996, the FBI compiles a report that confirms Semion Mogilevich operates a transnational criminal enterprise with about 250 members, including in the United States.

The report also acknowledges that Mogilevich has associates in the Russian government, which is later recognized as wholly operated by the the mafia and organized crime.

In November 1994, a multinational working group on Eurasian organized crime (OC) met in Moscow, Russia, to discuss the threat posed by Eurasian criminal organizations. The working group, consisting of Russian, German, Italian, and U.S. law enforcement representatives, identified five Eurasian criminal groups with multinational operations that are of mutual investigative interest.

One of these groups is the Semion Mogilevich Organization, based in Budapest, Hungary. Numbering approximately 250 members, it is headed by Semion “Seva” Mogilevich. Principal activities of the Mogilevich Organization include weapons trafficking, nuclear materials trafficking, prostitution, drug trafficking, dealing in precious gems, and money laundering. The Mogilevich Organization operates across Central Europe, including Prague, Czech Republic; Vienna, Austria; and Moscow, Russia. Its activities also extend to the United States, Ukraine, United Kingdom, France, Slovakia, and Israel.

The center of the Mogilevich Organization’s financial operations is Arigon, Ltd., a company registered in the Channel Islands, United Kingdom. Arigon, Ltd. deals extensively with Ukraine, selling oil products to Ukrzaliznytsa, the Ukrainian state railway administration. Arigon uses a number of banks in its operations, with accounts identified in Stockholm, Sweden; New York City; London, United Kingdom; and Geneva, Switzerland. Principal front companies in the United States are FNJ Trade Management Corporation in Los Angeles, California, and YBM Magnex in Newtown, Pennsylvania.

The Mogilevich Organization is tied to two other major OC (organized crime) groups — the Vyacheslav Ivankov Organization and the Solntsevskaya Organization — and also to Eurasian crime figures Monya Elson and Alimzhan Tochtachunov. Their operations and contacts overlap in some instances, as evidenced by meetings, joint investments, and silent partnerships in firms engaged in OC activity.
