MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) —— The Khamovnichesky District Court of Moscow put under home arrest former head of the department of proprietary relations of the Russian Defence Ministry Yevgeny Vasilyeva, who is accused in the Oboronservis criminal case. Thus, the court satisfied the request of the detectives.
“To meet the request of the detective, put Vasilyeva under home arrest,” press secretary of the court Darya Lyakh quoted the court verdict.
