Unlike most of his other competitors on FBI's most wanted list, Semion Mogilevich is serious about embracing all of humanity in his perspective and refuses to be constrained by any bias of race, gender, age, or nationality. Being a Jew, he had a great love for Jews and all things Jewish, and built his primary wealth by fleecing countless Jews who trusted him to sell their possessions during emigration to Israel. When any Jew trusted his property in the hands of Semion Mogilevich, that was usually the last he saw or heard of his belongings. It goes to show that Semion is a highly principled man and firmly believes that charity begins at home. Ironically, he still holds an Israeli passport, though most other countries have revoked theirs.
Whether it is petty theft in Moscow, or arms and drug smuggling throughout the world, Semion Mogilevich does it in style. When he decided to enter arms smuggling, he bought an armament factory in Hungary, and when he needed to launder his money, he took over Inkombank, one of the largest private banks in Russia. Semion Mogilevich holds large shares in Sukhoi, which produces military aircraft, and also owns Army Co-Op, which produces anti-aircraft guns to shoot them down.
The grievances of the FBI against Semion Mogilevich include mail, wire and securities fraud, conspiracy, money laundering, filing false registration and filings with Securities and Exchange Commission, and falsification of books and records. These charges of course pale against the other charges against Semion Mogilevich raised over the years including prostitution, drug smuggling, and multiple assassinations - crimes that could never be proved for want of evidence. Jon Winer of the Clinton administration has once gone on record saying, ''I can tell you that Semion Mogilevich is as serious an organized criminal as I have ever encountered and I am confident that he is responsible for contract killings.''
Be that as it may, in spite of UK barring his entry into Britain and labeling him ''one of the most dangerous men in the world,'' Semion Mogilevich continues to hog international limelight with impunity, and RosUkrEnergo, a company controlled by him is currently involved in Russia-Ukraine gas disputes. His almost diplomatic immunity granted by Russian authorities makes it impossible to convince Semion Mogilevich that ''crime doesn't pay,'' for he would answer that it does pay, and that too in billions.
