"Sergei Polonsky has been placed on the international wanted list," Moscow Tverskoi Court Judge Alexei Krivoruchko said on Tuesday when considering a petition that demands Polonsky's arrest in absentia.
An appropriate document has already been added to the case files, the judge said.
Interior Ministry investigator Oleg Silchenko, for his part, said that law enforcement agencies in other countries were also looking into Polonsky's activities.
"We have received letters from Interpol. Switzerland is conducting a money laundering inquiry against Polonsky," Silchenko said, asking the court to issue an arrest warrant for the businessman in absentia.
