MOSCOW, November 6. /TASS/. Russian nuclear materials exporter Techsnabexport, part of Rosatom, has applied the US law enforcement agencies with a request to provide detailed information about a recent arrest of Vadim Mikerin, CEO of the company’s US unit TENAM Corp., Techsnabexport said on Thursday.
Mikerin was detained in Washington outskirts on October 29 on conspiracy charges for causing financial damage to own parent company.
Mikerin allegedly received $1.693 million in kickbacks for the signing of $33 million contracts for uranium transportation from Russia to Maryland-based firm Transport Logistics International on a non-competitive basis, Maryland’s prosecutor’s office said earlier.
He could face a 20-year imprisonment if found guilty, the prosecutors said. Three US citizens — Daren Condrey and Carol Condrey, heads of TLI, and Boris Rubizhevsky, who served as consultant to Mikerin, could also face up to 20 years imprisonment if found guilty of wire fraud conspiracy.
Rosatom earlier did not rule out that the detention of Mikerin was of a political character.
