Looking for Links Between Hirschfeld and the Semion Mogilevich Crime Family

After I had identified Hirschfeld to the satisfaction of the Department of Homeland Security, and was informed of transactions between Hirschfeld and Boris Birshtein, I looked for links between Hirschfeld and associates of the Semion Mogilevich organized crime family. While studying the FBI report titled SEMION MOGILEVICH ORGANIZATION/ EURASIAN ORGANIZED CRIME, I focused primarily on the account of Birshtein hosting a summit meeting of Russian organized crime figures, which appears on pp. 35-36, and on a statement about Mogilevich associates trafficking in illegal weapons and radioactive materials, which appears on p. 25. My copy of the FBI report can be downloaded below.
