MOSCOW, October 25 (RAPSI) – Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov has been summoned to appear in Moscow's Savelovsky District Court to provide evidence in case over embezzlement of about $122.5 million from Aeroflot in the 1990s, RIA Novosti reported on Tuesday.

Okulov, ex-CEO of Aeroflot, has been summoned for November 8.

Nikolay Glushkov, a former first deputy director of Aeroflot, stands accused of conspiring with businessman Boris Berezovsky and convincing Aeroflot's general director Yevgeny Shaposhnikov to carry out financial restructuring. 

Investigators claim that the loans provided for the alleged restructuring were embezzled. The estimated cost of the alleged damage is $122.5 million. 

Glushkov, who had left for England, was charged in absentia.

Okulov was a board member of Aeroflot before becoming Deputy Transport Minister in April 2009.
