Azov was shut down, and it's operator has been in custody since 2011, however the police are just releasing these details now because they did not want to compromise their on-going arrests and investigation which tracked perps in 94 countries. The Azov perp is still awaiting a trial and has only been charged. Often these announcements are made weeks or months after the arrests have been made, with only a few extra warrants for arrests to be carried out.
I have been tracking this story throughout my day to keep informed. As a victim of online-sexual abuse (i.e. luring and used in child porn) I too feel that finding out about these police operations are both triggering yet also healing because I know that something is being done, the issue is getting more and more exposure, and since I never received any personal justice, I feel a form of vicarious vengence/closure seeing the perps stopped, charged, and convicted. Not to mention learning of the children rescued.
