Upon request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, competent authorities of Montenegro extradited to Russia Ullubiy Madiev and Viktor Zhilin for making them answerable as the accused.

Mr. Madiev is accused of perpetration of a crime, envisaged by Article 159 part 4 (fraud on especially large scale) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

According to the investigation, in the period from January to July 2009 Mr. Madiev, being in the city of Makhachkala, having misled his acquaintance about his financial state, received from him 30 million rubles for 30% per year.

Moreover, according to their arrangements, the victim transferred more than 20 million rubles to a settlement account of the Kontakt-Invest, LLC, for Mr. Madiev. The latter, having received the said monetary funds, did not fulfilled his duties on recovery of the loan, and escaped, having inflicted material damage on especially large scale at the total sum of more than 50 million rubles.

Mr. Zhilin is accused of a crime, envisaged by Article 146 part 3 paragraphs “c, d” (violation of copyright and neighboring rights) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

The investigation of the criminal case established that in the period form March 2002 to August 2008, director of the GUP Construction Institute Archangelskgrazhdanproekt, Mr. Zhilin, having at the disposal of the company two licensed copies of the Autodesk Arhitectural Dektor 2006 software, instructed his employees to copy and to install software on 22 office computers.

Objects of the copyright and neighboring rights were illegally used till 25.02.2011, and thus material damage on especially large scale was inflicted to the copyright holder.

Since the accused persons escaped from the law enforcement bodies, a measure of restriction in the form of detention was selected against them and they were declared internationally wanted.

After their detention on the territory of Montenegro, the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation sent requests for extradition to foreign colleagues, which were satisfied.

Viktor Zhilin and Ullubiy Madiev were escorted to Moscow through Turkey by the special convoy officers.
