Sergei Kondratevsky, former deputy of the Supreme Rada (Ukrainian parliament), suspected of embezzling 14 million dollars, has been detained in Moscow, reported the press-service of the Russian Interior Ministry's criminal investigation department.
Kondratevsky was elected to the Supreme Rada in 1998. Over the past few years he also headed trading house Kodratevskys and was board chairman of Crimean Commercial Bank.
Over this period, abusing his office and employing fake documents, the deputy embezzled money of his depositors and shareholders, the press-service noted.
Ukraine's law enforcement bodies failed to bring Kondratevsky to justice because he had deputy immunity. This year his powers expired, and he was put on an international wanted list.
Operatives learned that he was living in the Moscow region, and in the course of a special operation he was detained.
