The ex-presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, the former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Viktor Ishaev, was changed by the prosecution. Instead of fraud, he is charged with embezzlement of Rosneft funds.

According to the press service of the Investigative Committee of Russia, the investigation did not find signs of fraud or breach of trust in the crime. In the near future, the case will be sent to the prosecutor's office to confirm the charge, then the case will go to court. Both articles punish up to ten years in prison with a fine of up to one million rubles.

The criminal case of Ishaev, initiated earlier, is connected with the theft of money of Rosneft, where he was vice president in 2013-2018. At the end of March 2019, the ex-ambassador charged in fraud. According to investigators, Ishaev stole money from the company by concluding lease agreements with a controlled company at an inflated price.

Last April, the Moscow City Court refused to release  Ishayev from house arrest. The damage compensation and the pledge in 15 million rubles did not help. In May, the court extended the term of house arrest. 27 to August, and then another two months. He does not admit guilt.
