"Baring Vostok case" .
Huntsman called Calvi's passage from the detention center a step in the right direction
The transfer of investment fund founder Baring Vostok, Michael Calvey, to house arrest is "a step in the right direction," said US Ambassador to Russia John Huntsman in an interview with Radio Liberty.
He noted that he considers the case of the detention of an alarming American citizen and expresses hope for the rapid resolution of the Calvi case.
Commenting on the case of Paul Whelan, accused of spying in Russia, Huntsman said the US side had not yet seen evidence of his involvement in crimes. "We only heard about espionage, but I don't think so," he said. "If so, I think we would have received confirmation and proof already."
The Basmanny court in Moscow changed Calvi's moderation to house arrest on April 11th. Previously, the investigative committee addressed the petition in question. According to investigators, the founder of Baring Vostok has stable ties in Moscow, his own real estate sector, and a business man has three children. The survey also asked to change the preventive measure of the former CEO of Vostochny Bank Alexei Kordichev, who testified against Calvi.
