Russia yesterday announced the arrest of one its most senior former nuclear officials for allegedly pocketing state research grants and stealing other people's work off the Internet.
The Rosatom state nuclear corporation said deputy general director Yevgeny Yevstratov oversaw a team of scientists that received 50 million rubles ($1.7 million) in research assistance before being sacked this year.
It said Yevstratov served as a deputy general director of Rosatom between 2008 and April 2011 before being removed "in connection with a transfer to a different job".
