The head of a security subsidiary of Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom has been detained over a $38,000 bribe given in annexed Crimea, security forces said on Monday.
The head of another Rosatom subsidiary had been charged in the U.S. in 2014 for soliciting a bribe in exchange for contracts to ship uranium to the United States. Earlier this year, a Maryland-based company agreed to pay $2 million to settle charges that it had bribed the official.
