A hold-up against Chinese entrepreneurs was perpetrated in the largest city of the Russian Far East, Khabarovsk.
As the press service of the Main Directorate of Russia's Interior Ministry for the Far-Eastern federal district said on Monday, five unknown people wearing camouflage burst into a flat in the Blyukher Street.
Four citizens of China lived in it. A representative of the Directorate specified that they are officially registered in Russia, and engage in commercial activity linked with timber.
The criminals tied the Chinese and, threatening them with firearms, took 300,000 roubles (over 10,000 dollars), four cellphones and 900 US dollars.
A criminal case was launched on the fact of robbery, and the search for the criminals is under way.
