MOSCOW, June 15 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Khoroshevsky District Court on Wednesday ordered the detention of Mikhail Minayev, the head of the Aeroflot fleet planning and development department, on large-scale fraud charges, the court’s press service told RAPSI.

Thus, the investigators’ motion to put the defendant in detention until August 8 was granted.

In mid-May, the same court issued an arrest warrant in absentia for the airline’s former Deputy Director General for Strategy and Marketing Andrey Panov, who had left Russia. A criminal case against him is related to the development of the air carrier’s marketing policy.
