Officers from Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) raided a police station in the Moscow region on Wednesday over alleged links to illegal gambling.

On Tuesday, two police officers were arrested in connection with an illegal gambling business, an FSB source told RIA Novosti.

"A group of security officers entered the building of the Moscow region police on Wednesday morning and started to confiscate documents," the source said.

Illegal casinos have spread like wildfire across Russia since a law came into force in July 2009 banning gambling everywhere except in four remote zones.
