The official statement of BTC-E:

"
On July 25 (11:00) The FBI Agents had intruded into the Data-Center where the hardware servers of BTC-E service was located and confiscated all the equipment, the servers contained databases and wallets of our service


Almost 6 days we couldn't get any information from our hosting provider ( the place where data centers were located ) about what has really happened.  Therefore only right now we published the explanations of what has really taken place

On July 28 the domain name also has been seized by the FBI

At the moment a part of our funds are arrested by the FBI

In the next update, we will give the information about available options in regard to recovery of BTC-e exchange and in the case if this will be impossible we prepare procedures to return the FUNDS to our customers.

In the next 1-2 weeks, we are gonna estimate and publish information about what amount of our FUNDs are in the hands of FBI and what amount of FUNDs is available for return to our clients


For all of You who thought that we are dead and already buried us - we want to remind that our service always was based on the trust and we are ready to take responsibility for this trust

We promise to return FUNDs to all of our clients!  


About The Arrest of the Russian Vinnik Aleksandr by FBI:

We declare officially that  Alexander Vinnik never was the Head or Employee of the BTC-e service.

With respect  BTC-E service.
"


So If FBI will hunt down every crypto-exchange in such way - will this help to regulate the market? or it just will force the players to go deep into the shadow?

What a load of BS? Now they are saying that Vinnik had nothing to do with BTC-e? Then how did his coins ended up there? Also, how are they going to process the refunds, when all the coins have been seized by the FBI?

It seems to me that we are dealing with the usual fraud. Now they are blaming the FBI, but people who have invested their money in these altcoins will never see his money again. So very often the case. I do not trust the new altcoins. It took many years before I trusted my bitcoins now and will never change their beliefs.

Even I lost quite a bit of my money in BTC-e. I don't care about BTC-e or Alexander Vinnik. But all I want is my money back. One thing I don't understand is that why the FBI is punishing the BTC-e users rather than the owners? Why they are confiscating our money?

Well the most stupiedest thing ever was to place the servers of a RUSSIAN enterprise in the US. Thats actually reason enough to hold them accountable for this crap now!

I don't think that the servers were located in the United States. They were probably based in either Bulgaria or Greece. But the authorities in these countries co-operated with the Americans to seize the equipment. (Just my wild guess).

To answer the thread title, yes. This is quite obviously directed at Russia, for obvious reasons. Sessions is getting yelled at for his decision to recuse; he put up a lot of quick wins to dodge right wing/conservative flack. Its sad because hardline conservatives are eating their own with this.  Sessions is one of the most conservative (im talkin 1930's style conservative) cats alive, let alone in Washington. And was thrown under the bus because he doesnt serve Trumps agenda.

The Mooch, Spicy, and possibly Jefferson Beauregard Sessions the Third, Republican. Loyalty means nothing in the current WH  Wink

but to answer the question (i digressed Grin)

Quote
MOSCOW (AP) — Five alleged Russian cybercriminals have been arrested across Europe in American-initiated operations in the past nine months. Here's a look at who they are, how they were caught and what they're accused of doing.

— Pyotr Levashov, 36, is accused by U.S. prosecutors of being "one of the world's most notorious criminal spammers." Law enforcement and security researchers have linked Levashov, via his alias "Peter Severa," to a series of powerful botnets — networks of hijacked computers carrying names like Storm, Waledec and Kelihos and capable of pumping out more than a billion emails a day. He was arrested in April when the AirBNB apartment he was sharing with his family in Barcelona was raided by police. He is fighting extradition; his wife says he's innocent.

— Evgeny Nikulin, 29, is accused by U.S. prosecutors of penetrating computers at Silicon Valley firms including LinkedIn and Dropbox in 2012, around the time both companies reported massive breaches affecting tens of millions of users. A Lamborghini-lover who ran a popular Instagram account devoted to sports cars, Nikulin socialized with children of the Kremlin's elite, including the daughter of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. He was arrested at a Prague restaurant in October and is currently appealing the decision of a Czech court to OK his extradition. Russia has lodged a counter-extradition request in a bid to bring him home.

— Alexander Vinnik, 38, is accused by U.S. prosecutors of running of major bitcoin exchange that "helped to launder criminal proceeds from syndicates around the world." He was arrested earlier this week on the grounds of his hotel near Ouranoupolis in northern Greece — an area popular with Russian tourists. Vinnik, who was on vacation with his wife and two young children, was distracted by an innocuous question from a policeman while a second officer came up from the side and snatched his phone. The exchange he's alleged to have run, BTC-e, is currently out of commission.

— Stanislav Lisov, 31, is accused by U.S. prosecutors of developing malicious software called NeverQuest which stole information on banking clients and financial websites and caused almost $1 million in losses in the United States. Lisov, from the small resort town of Taganrog in southern Russia, was detained at Barcelona airport in January while in the middle of a European honeymoon. He has said he was formerly employed by IT company Ogetto that did work for the Russian government. Lisov had an extradition hearing in Madrid last week and is awaiting a ruling.

— Yury Martyshev, 35, is accused by U.S. prosecutors of running a "counter antivirus service" where cybercriminals could test whether their malware would be blocked by computer security products. He was extradited to the United States from Latvia after being detained on a train from Russia in April. He recently pleaded not guilty before a judge in Alexandria, Virginia.
