Alexander Ryabinin, former deputy of sacked Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, was charged with bribery on Tuesday, a spokesman for Russia's investigative committee said.

Alexander Ryabinin, former deputy of sacked Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, was charged with bribery on Tuesday, a spokesman for Russia's investigative committee said.

"An investigation is currently underway to verify the evidence of Ryabinin's guilt," Vladimir Markin told RIA Novosti.

Ryabinin, who oversaw the capital's lucrative construction sector, resigned after corruption charges were brought against him last week. A criminal case against him was originally opened in March, but was later dropped.

Ex-mayor Yury Luzhkov, who was sacked by President Dmitry Medvedev last Tuesday, had frequently spoken out in defense of Ryabinin.
