The Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation continues to actively cooperate with law enforcement agencies of other countries to combat crime.
So, at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the competent authorities of the Republic of Armenia extradited Rolandi Azov to Russia. He is accused of a crime envisaged by part 3 Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud committed on a large scale).
According to investigators, in the city of Rostov-on-Don, Azov received from an acquaintance 766 thousand rubles for the supply of food from Greece to Russia. Not intending to fulfill his obligations, he disappeared, managing funds at his discretion, and therefore he was declared wanted.
In November 2019, his whereabouts were established in the Republic of Armenia.
After that, Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation sent a request for his extradition to foreign colleagues, which was complied with on December 2019.
The handover of the person was carried out in compliance with all necessary anti-epidemic safety measures.
