MOSCOW, March 15 (RAPSI) – The Investigative Committee of Russia has filed a motion with a court in Yekaterinburg demanding to place the State Duma lawmaker Vadim Belousov in detention on corruption charges, attorney Igor Trunov has told RAPSI.

According to investigators, from May 2010 to January 2014, Belousov, ex-governor of the Chelyabinsk Region Mikhail Yurevich and other accomplices conspired to receive over 3.2 billion rubles (about $50 million) from the Autobahn Holding managers for favoritism and assistance in auctions.

In May 2017, the Sverdlovsk Regional Court issued an arrest warrant for Yurevich in absentia on allegations of taking 26 million rubles in bribes and incitement to defamation.
