    Moscow's Savyolovsky court on Friday sentenced former first deputy CEO of Aeroflot, Nikolai Glushkov, an accomplice of late Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, in absentia to eight years in prison in the case of a $122 million embezzlement from Russia's flagship air carrier, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the courtroom.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In addition, the court ordered Glushkov to pay the entire sum to Aeroflot.

    The former executive is currently on an international wanted list. In 2010, he was granted political asylum in the UK.
