The Prosecutor General's office has sent a formal request to their British counterparts for the extradition of former Bank of Moscow head Andrei Borodin, who faces four major charges relating to the theft of millions of dollars in bank funds, RIA-Novosti reported Friday.
Prosecutor spokeswoman Marina Gridnyeva said a request was sent to United Kingdom authorities immediately after Borodin's whereabouts were established.
Borodin fled to London last year after state-owned VTB gained control of the heavily indebted Bank of Moscow and has been on an international wanted list. He has said the charges against him are politically motivated.
