HANOI, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Border officials at a checkpoint on the Vietnamese-Laotian border have detained two Russian citizens whom the Russian authorities placed on the international list of wanted criminals via Interpol.
Valery Polyakov and Alexei Kosenok, both of them permanents residents of the city of Novokuznetsk in southern Siberia, were featured in a case on setting up an organized crime group. The Russian Interior placed them on the federal wanted list and Interpol entered them in the international wanted list in August 2012.
Polyakov and Kosenok were detained on the border July 9 and were taken to Hanoi the next day. Department of Investigations at the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security ordered to place them to a provisional detention ward.
“The Russian embassy in Hanoi is keeping up close contacts with the Vietnamese law enforcement agencies and the diplomats have also established contacts with the Russian agencies concerned,” a spokesman for the embassy said. “We’re monitoring closely the conditions, in which the two Russian citizens are kept, and the observance of their legitimate rights and interests.”
