Pugachyov Blames His Interpol Listing on Russian Elite

Sergei Pugachyov, a former banker and confidante of Vladimir Putin, said he was placed on Interpol’s most-wanted list because of a campaign against him led by the highest echelons of Russian politics.

Pugachyov, who faces civil and criminal trials in the U.K. and Russia over the 2010 collapse of International Industrial Bank, said Interpol’s involvement is illegal and he’ll explore “all avenues” to fight to get his name removed.
