Moscow subway chief has been charged with siphoning off 112 million rubles ($4 million) in public funds, prosecutors say.

Dmitry Gayev, who resigned in February after the allegations of fraud and embezzlement came to light, faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Irina Dudukina, spokesperson for the investigative committee of Russia's Interior Ministry, said Gayev illegally patented the electronic metro tickets that replaced tokens in 1999 and received 112 million rubles in patent proceeds over the subsequent 11 years.
