In the United States, the ex-deputy head of the “Voentorg” Teif was sentenced to five years in prison

Ex-deputy head of Voentorg Leonid Teif was sentenced by a court in the United States on Friday to 5 years in prison in the case of laundering millions of dollars.

Teif was accused of laundering $ 150 million, allegedly obtained through kickbacks in the distribution of Russian state contracts, as well as attempting to organize a contract killing, illegal possession of weapons, an attempt to legalize an illegal immigrant, and visa fraud.

“He was sentenced to 60 months in prison,” a court spokeswoman said.

She said that she had no information about what sentence the court handed down to Teif’s wife Tatiana.

Teif pleaded guilty to three counts of money laundering, tax violations, and visa violations. His wife, Tatiana, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the US authorities.

According to the US Department of Justice, Teif faced up to 20 years. There are closed documents in the case, including those that relate to the prosecutor’s office’s request for a verdict, which may indicate the cooperation of the accused with the investigation.
