European Union and U.S. officials say they have shut down a cybercrime group accused of stealing hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide, putting five key suspects in custody – three of whom are Ukrainians.

The global effort to take down this network involved close support between prosecutors and investigators from 30 countries, including Ukraine, Germany, Australia, Sweden, Singapore, and the United States.
