CEO of Rosbank, Societe General's Russian unit, was arrested on bribe-taking charges right in his office on May 15, 2013. He is charged with extorting $1.5 for extending a loan and easing its terms. He was caught after another senior manager, acting as an intermediary, passed 5 million roubles as an advance payment. Below is the video of the handover provided to the Life News agency by the police. You could hear the woman saying that 'here's another 5 million, in roubles... he promised to bring the rest soon'. 

Below is the video of the arrest involving special forces that the police say were necessary because the bank had its own security service. The armed men get inside the bank like in a Hollywood blockbuster and find the banker standing in his office with the money in front of him. 

And, on a positive note, a video viewed more than 4 million times by now, featuring some of the kindest moments on the Russian roads, including Infinity drivers getting out of the car to help a grandma cross the street. As one commentary says, the clip has done much more to the improvement of Russia's image abroad than the Russian Foreign Ministry has done in years.

Willy-nilly, Youtube has really become a soft power tool to influence the hearts and minds of the people around the world.

Now, if there is anything you would like to know about these videos or about anything else in Russia, feel free to drop us a line.
