    Swedish retail company IKEA denied Russia’s accusations of tax fraud of 32 billion rubles ($516 million), "Attorneys and Business" lawyers bureau said in a press release on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) On Monday, Russia’s Investigative Committee launched a criminal investigation into alleged tax fraud of 32 billion rubles by the German IKEA Einrichtungs GmBH during sales of shares in IKEA MOS in 2011, according to the press release.
