MOSCOW, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— A new charge of attempted fraud has been brought against businessman Viktor Baturin, the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.

In all, Baturin is indicted with three criminal episodes. “He is accused of two attempts of embezzlement from the Inteco Company with false bills. Initially he was suspected of the attempted embezzlement of 10.8 million rubles. A new episode of the attempted embezzlement of over 5.6 billion rubles has been added by now,” the department said.
