MOSCOW, July 6 (Itar-Tass) - Former first deputy prime minister and former finance minister of the Moscow Region Alexei Kuznetsov is detained in France at the request of Russia's law-enforcement authorities, a source at the Russian Interior Ministry's press centre told Itar-Tass.
Several forged passports were seized from Kuznetsov when he was detained.
His extradition to Russia is under consideration now, the ministry official said.
From November 2012, the ex-minister was on an international wanted list. In Russia, he is suspected of fraud, legalization of money obtained as a result of a crime and embezzlement.
Kuznetsov is suspected of committing a crime in the utilities sector of the Moscow Region, which resulted in damage estimated at more than 3.5 billion roubles to the regional budget.
