MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. Former Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev, sentenced to 8 years’ imprisonment, has been sent to a maximum security correctional facility, a source in law enforcement agencies told TASS.
"Ulyukaev has been shipped off to the correctional facility," the source reported, not providing its location, since only the convict’s relatives are privy to this information.
On April 12, after considering Ulyukaev’s appeal, the Moscow City Court sentenced Ulyukayev to eight years in a maximum-security correctional facility and a 130-mln ruble ($2.2 mln) fine for taking a bribe. The guilty verdict had come into force on the same day.
