Stankevich, who has been on the run for two years, is accused of accepting a $10,000 bribe in connection with an open-air concert in Red Square in July 1992. A former member of the Soviet parliament, he also served as deputy mayor of Moscow and adviser to President Boris Yeltsin. (Itar-Tass, April 20; Interfax, April 21)
