"operation blue orchid" Wikipedia (via DBPedia)

Operation Blue Orchid was a joint United States-Russian operate to dismantle an online child pornography ring, centering around the website Blue Orchid. It began in May 2000, after an informant in a separate child pornography case came forward with information about the Blue Orchid site. The website, which showed depictions of rape, also contained videos of Russian boys aged eight being abused. It sold them for around $300 each. The investigation included US Customs Officials buying one of the videos from the website. The operation lead to the arrest of four Americans and five Russians, including Vsevolod Solntsev-Elbe, creator and business manager of the Blue Orchid website. It was seen as a success – particularly for international cooperation – and lead Charles Winwood, acting commissioner in US Customs, to say "Operation Blue Orchid demonstrates that there really are no borders when it comes to our mutual interest in protecting children". more »
