The Basmanny court’s resolution to put Yevtushenkov under house arrest shall remain in force and the defence’s appeal be dismissed, the Moscow City Court ruled.
Thereby the court refused to release Yevtushenkov on bail. He will have to stay at his countryside home in the Moscow Region’s village of Zhukovka.
The court refused to ease other restrictions. Yevtushenkov cannot leave the premises of his home, use mobile telephone or other means of communication, including the Internet, as well as to contact any persons other than the investigators or lawyers.
Meanwhile, AFC Sistema's shares slumped 3.5%, and Bashneft's — 1.7% on news that court left Yevtushenkov under house arrest.
