The arrest of AFK Sistema's main shareholder, Vladimir Yevtushenkov, is a serious blow to the Russian business climate, Rusnano CEO Anatoly Chubais told Interfax Wednesday morning.

"I became familiarized with the text of the charges, and I don't understand it. I don't understand how it's possible to seriously talk about money laundering by Yevtushenko. I don't understand how it's possible to link him to deals in Bashneft's  privatization, to which he had no relation whatsoever," the head of the Russian nanotechnology corporation said.
