On November 15, Moscow’s Basmanny district court ruled to place Ulyukayev under house arrest, not allowed to leave it without permission, communicate with anyone, except his close relatives, send messages by mail or use any other means of communication, except for emergency services.
Ulyukayev was arrested upon receiving $2 mln as a bribe in exchange for the Economic Ministry’s positive assessment that allowed the oil major Rosneft to buy out from the state a 50.08% stake in the oil company Bashneft. Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko added that the extortion of the bribe was accompanied by threats against Rosneft representatives.
