Ivan Vandyshev, a criminal defendant in a multimillion dollar fraud case previously extradited by the competent authorities of Spain, was escorted to Krasnodar. The Krasnodar Regional Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia charged Vandyshev charged in absentia with fraud on a large scale (Part 4 Article 159 of the Criminal Code).
According to investigators, under the regional target program "Ensuring the construction of Olympic facilities and the development of Sochi as a mountain climatic and balneological resort" a state contract for the construction of sewage treatment plants was signed with the company, which was in fact directed by the accused. In accordance with the terms of the contract in 2012-2013, about 385 million rubles were transferred to the company's bank account, which Vandyshev withdrew from the company's turnover and disposed of it at his own discretion, without fulfilling the obligations he had undertaken.
Since Vandyshev had left the Russian Federation before the criminal proceedings were initiated, he had previously been placed on the international wanted list. The court ruled to place him into custody in absentia. The accused has now been transferred to an investigative isolator, where the necessary investigative measures aimed at completing the investigation will be carried out with him. The criminal investigation continues.
