The US authorities arrested a native of the Ukrainian SSR, Andrei Kukushkin, on charges of violating the election campaigns finance rules.
The 46-year-old businessman was taken into custody before the hearing, which is due to take place on Friday.
Other suspects are natives of the Ukrainian and Belarusian SSRs – Lev Parnassus and Igor Fruman, as well as David Correia, who was born in the USA. They are accused of conspiracy to hide the source of contributions to the election campaigns of two candidates for positions in Nevada. Contributions of $ 10,000 were allegedly made from an unnamed businessman from Russia, who was hoping to obtain licenses for a business related to marijuana.
