Kremlin puppet escapes criminal investigation

One of the leaders of the new Kremlin-led political party, Right Cause (Pravoe Delo), Yevgeni Chichvarkin, has fled the country to escape criminal charges.

Mr Chichvarkin, former shareholder of one of Russia’s largest mobile phone dealers, Euroset (Evroset), is accused of illegally importing mobile handsets and racketeering.

Mr Chichvarkin was tipped to be appointed head of Right Cause’s Moscow wing. The Kremlin is now hastily looking for a new head figure for the party organisation, Nezavisimaya Gazeta reports.
