Upon request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, Russian national Vladimir Borisov was extradited from the Republic of Bulgaria. He is accused of a crime, envisaged by Article 159 part 4 (fraud) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

According to the investigation, not later than in July 2014 in the city of Saint Petersburg, director of the SPb-Realty, OOO, Mr. Borisov, by previous concert with other persons, decided to illegally acquire the property and rights of use of the Institute of Architectural Construction Design, OAO.

Criminals misled officials of the territorial department of Rosimushchestvo in Saint Petersburg, having provided a package of documents that had false information and acquired access to management of assets of the Institute of Architectural Construction Design, OAO.

Implementing their criminal intent they organized and conducted public auction, having ensured illegal transfer of rights to property, on the use of property and on recovery of accounts receivables to the sum of not less than 62 mln rubles. Afterwards they disposed of them at their own discretion, sold to the third persons and inflicted especially large damage to the Russian Federation at the sum of not less than 305 mln rubles.

Since the accused fled from the law enforcement authorities, a measure of restriction in the form of detention was selected against him, and upon instruction of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation he was declared internationally wanted.

The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation sent a request for his extradition due to the fact that on 18 October 2021 he was detained on the territory of Bulgaria.

Owing to coordinated activities of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation and organized close cooperation with the competent authorities of the Republic of Bulgaria, a positive decision on extradition of the accused was achieved.

Special convoy will bring Vladimir Borisov to Moscow from Sophia.
