A video which was shared by the law enforcement official shows searching of house , seizing of evidences and properties like Computer equipments, Tesla , Mercedes car along with the cash of 500 million Ukranian hryvnias($180,000 approx).
It is evident that despite of arrest of the clop ransomware gang, there were two new victims data on their ransomware data leak site. Which proves the arrested gang can be from the money laundering portion on the operation .
