Another senior Russian Defense Ministry official has been arrested on bribery charges, Lieutenant General Yuri Kuznetsov, the second senior official to face such charges in a month.

The arrested General Yuri Kuznetsov, head of the Central Personnel Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, is accused of taking more than 30 million rubles in bribes between 2021 and 2023.

At the time, he was the head of the General Staff Directorate, which deals with the security of technical information.

During the raid, 100 million rubles, gold coins, expensive watches and other luxury items were recovered from their possession.

Officials say Kuznetsov’s arrest is unrelated to the arrest of Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov.

It should be noted that Kuznetsov faces fifteen years in prison.
