Today, on 14 August 2018, at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the competent authorities of the Kingdom of the Netherlands extradited Russian citizen Danil Polyakov to Russia.

The investigating authorities accuse him of the commission of the crime specified in Article 159 (fraud on a particularly large scale) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

According to the investigation, in 2014-2015, in Barnaul, Polyakov, through deceipt and abuse of trust under various false pretexts, borrowed money from his friends promising to return it, but in fact was not planning to do so. In this manner, he misappropriated the funds for a more than 23 million rubles and disposed of them at his discretion.

Since Polyakov escaped from criminal prosecution, he was put on the international wanted list.

In May 2016, he was detained in the territory of the Netherlands, after which the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation sent a request for his extradition with the view of criminal prosecution.

Owing to the close cooperation between the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation and the competent authorities of the Netherlands, it was possible to obtain a decision on his extradition.

Accompanied by a special convoy, Danil Polyakov was extradited to Russia.
