5th October 2010, Comments 0 comments

A former deputy of ex-Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov has been charged with corruption, a spokeswoman for Russian investigators told AFP on Tuesday. She declined further details.

President Dmitry Medvedev last week dramatically sacked Luzhkov, Moscow's mayor for the past 18 years, saying he had lost confidence in him.
