The Senator is charged with tax evasion.
Member of the Federation Council Suleyman Kerimov does not recognize the charges brought to him by the French side, RIA Novosti reports citing the source.
According to the agency, Paris was informed about the diplomatic immunity of Kerimov. The Russian embassy in France is now doing everything possible to immediately release the Senator. In addition, a lawyer works with the Senator.
It is also known that in the near future the court will choose the measure of restraint for Kerimov.

The miraculous landing of an Airbus A321 belonging to Ural Airlines on a cornfield raised a number of questions in relation to waste landfills in the metropolitan area. The airbus struck a flock of seagulls because an illegal dump site was established not far from Zhukovsky International Airport. The CrimeRussia performed its own inquest to uncover ties between the emergency landing of the A321 and Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow Region. It turned out that dump sites, seagulls, officials of Ramenskoe, and detained thief-in-law Shishkan are links of the same chain that cannot be broken even by the law enforcement authorities. After the aerial incident, a criminal case was instituted under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of the rules for traffic safety and operation of the railway, air, sea and inland water transportation systems). But the question is: why no criminal proceedings were launched in relation to the corruption and establishment of illegal landfills?
