Russia said Tuesday it has detained over 30 people suspected of stealing Russian and foreign bank cards and selling their data.

   The suspects, including citizens of Ukraine and Lithuania, were detained during a large-scale operation conducted in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sevastopol and other regions, it said.

   The suspects created more than 90 online stores to sell stolen data, which were later used by cybercriminals to steal money from bank accounts of citizens of various countries, the Russian Federal Security Service said.

   More than one million U.S. dollars in cash, three million rubles, computers, fake identification documents, firearms, drugs, gold bars and precious coins were seized.
