The U.S. Department of State has announced a reward of up to $7 million for information that will help bring to justice Russian Artem Uss, a suspected financial fraudster.
This is stated in a statement by State Department spokesman Matthew Miller.
The US reward is announced under the Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program (TOCRP) for information leading to the arrest or conviction of Uss for "conspiracy to engage in or attempted engagement in transnational organized crime."
Artem Uss was detained in October 2022 at the Milan airport at the request of Washington. He was charged with four counts in the United States, including sanctions violations and money laundering.
