In the Gorshkov/Ivanov case the Russian FSB formally charged the US FBI
with breaking Russian law by hacking in to the gang's Russian computers
and gathering evidence.  One ruling in the cases said Russian law does
not apply to the FBI agents operating in the US.  So basically you have
both sides claiming that "I am the law", and whoever has the body wins.
