13. THE HOMEMADE ARMS TRADER
Who: Cody Wilson – director of Defense Distributed.
What he wants: Total freedom of the internet and the creation of ungovernable weaponry and money markets.
What he does: Uploads blueprints for 3D-printable weapons. Software to make a gun called the Liberator was put on his website last year and had been downloaded 100,000 times by the time the US State Department intervened to have the plans removed.
How he can be stopped: Wilson could face an investigation for possible illegal export of munitions which, if found guilty, would see him face up to seven years in prison. If it could be proven that his actions seriously threatened “US national and regional security interests” the penalty could be longer.
12. THE UKRAINIAN MOBSTER
Who: Semion Mogilevich – Ukranian-born crime boss believed to be the “boss of bosses” of most Russian Mafia syndicates in the world, who operates without borders.
What he wants: Money and power
What he does: Drug trafficking, trading nuclear material, contract murders, and international prostitution. He has since held over 100 front companies and bank accounts in 27 different countries, all to keep the cash flowing. Before he was murdered, former Russian secret agent claimed Mogilevich had benefitted from a good relationship with Vladimir Putin since the 90s. Arguably one of Mogelivich’s most concerning characteristics is his influence in Europe’s energy sector. With only a $100,000 bounty on his head, he controls extensive natural gas pipelines in Russia and Eastern Europe.
How he can be stopped: In 2008, Russian police arrested Mogelivich, using one of his many pseudonyms, Sergei Schneider, in connection with tax evasion for a cosmetics company, Arbat Prestige. Three years later, the charges were dropped. He is on the FBI’s most wanted list for his involvement in defrauding $150 million. Defeating the corruption and managing to charge him for something will slow him down.
