The US authorities have withdrawn the request for the extradition from Germany of Russian DJ Denis Kaznacheev, who lives in Berlin. The American authorities suspected him of laundering hundreds of millions of dollars, and in the summer of 2020, a Berlin court first sent him to a pre-trial detention center, then released him, but made it quite clear that he would not object to extradition. For a year and a half, the details of the case have become known: Kaznacheev is accused of being behind a money laundering service on the darknet called WebKazna (that is, according to the version of the investigation, he actually named the illegal business by his own name). Relatives of the DJ believe that he was set up by a family friend. Meduza tells how this story ends.
