MOSCOW, November 15. /TASS/. The Russian Investigative Committee (IC) has detained Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev, IC spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko told TASS on Tuesday.

"The circumstances of the crime are connected with Alexey Ulyukayev who holds a government post in the Russian Federation receiving $2 million on November 14 for the positive assessment provided by the Economic Development Ministry that allowed Rosneft to complete the deal on purchasing the government's 50% stake in Bashneft," Petrenko said.

"The minister has been detained. Investigators plan to indict Alexey Ulyukayev and petition the measure of restraint soon," she added.
