If you can get past "local" barriers, it very probably will happen.
I'm in regular touch with the relevant authorities and I can tell you
that the FBI is 100% targeted on getting results in exactly that area.
While there are obvious difficulties with Russian (and neighbouring
country) ISPs, for the rest of Europe any such misconduct gets fast
action - as witness the speed with which Law Enforcement moved over
the Sasser worm - the author of which is already in custody.
If you are aware of any live case believed to be originating in Europe,
I'm sure you can think of a suitable person with whom to get in touch!
