"I am in Russia! During these few particularly dramatic days, strong and reliable people were with me. Thanks to them", - Artyom Uss told RIA Novosti.
The son of the head of the Krasnoyarsk Territory was detained on October 17 at Milan Malpensa International Airport on an American arrest warrant. He, along with five other Russians, is charged by the United States with evading sanctions and money laundering, smuggling oil to a Venezuelan company, as well as transferring dual-use products. In December, Ussa Jr. was sent under house arrest.
According to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, referring to sources in the investigation, the son of the Krasnoyarsk governor was able to escape from house arrest in the suburbs of Milan thanks to the help of a group of 6-7 people. At least four cars were used for these purposes. According to La Repubblica, a private plane was used to escape. Oss Jr. explained the incident by the political bias of the Italian court.
"The Italian court, whose impartiality I initially counted on, has demonstrated its clear political bias. Unfortunately, he is also ready to "bend" under pressure from the US authorities", - he said in an interview with the agency.
