Yevgeny Adamov, Russia's former Nuclear Power Minister

...Yevgeny Adamov, 67, is currently awaiting trial in Russia on charges of embezzlement and abuse of office during his tenure as Russia's nuclear power minister from 1998 to 2001...
..Yevgeny Adamov says Po-210 is easy to produce and can be found in food , admitted that polonium-210 is highly toxic. If it is added to food and enters the gullet, it subjects the body to continual radiation poisoning...

...Adamov, 67, was detained in Switzerland at the request of U.S. authorities in May 2005 on suspicion of stealing $9 million in U.S. funds that were earmarked for improving nuclear safety in Russia.... Had he been convicted in the U.S., Adamov would have faced 60 years in prison. He was extradited to Russia in early 2006 to face charges...

Moscow court set to hear Adamov case Dec. 5
...trial has already been adjourned twice - on October 26 and November 8 - because Adamov's lawyers did not appear in court, and one of the defendants was in the hospital....
... Adamov has been accused of leading an organized criminal group that inflicted damage worth over 3 billion rubles (about $110 million) to the Russian budget, enterprises and organizations....
Adamov is being prosecuted along with two co-defendants:
...Vyacheslav Pismennyi, former director of the Troitsky research center...
...Revmir Freishut, former director of TechSnabExport....

Adamov Fraud Trial
MOSCOW ....The trial of former Nuclear Power Minister Yevgeny Adamov began Tuesday after two postponements. Adamov faces charges of organized fraud and abuse of power stemming from his time in office from 1998 to 2001.... If convicted, Adamov could face up to 10 years in prison....


Adamov was the head of the Russian atomic energy ministry, MinAtom.
See Evgeny Adamov (Yevgeny Adamov or Yevgeniy Adamov)
...He was appointed by President Boris Yeltsin in 1998 and ousted by President Vladimir Putin in 2001. Adamov, a nuclear physicist, then joined the Dollezhal Institute.
In 2005, Adamov was arrested in Bern, Switzerland, on fraud charges.
The arrest was made at the request of the United States. The US accused Adamov of diverting up to $9 million which the US Energy Department gave Russia to help improve security at its nuclear facilities.
Extradition requests were filed first by the USA and then by Russia, which has actively protested the move by the US.
Adamov was finally extradited to Russia.
The move was widely covered as a successful ploy by the Russian government to prevent Adamov from telling US authorites state secrets (and perhaps some criminal secrets) that he knew....


The Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAEA) headquartered in Moscow, abbreviated as RosAtom (РосАтом) also see MinAtom:

Federal Atomic Energy Agency ...is the federal agency of Russia, the regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex. It is comparable in function to the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It is headquartered in Moscow....
...The Ministry for Atomic Energy of the Russian Federation or MinAtom was established on January 29, 1992 as a successor of the Ministry of Nuclear Engineering and Industry of the USSR. It was reorganized as the Federal Agency on Atomic Energy on March 9, 2004. It was directed by Yevgeny Adamov until he was ousted by President Vladimir Putin in 2001. He was replaced by Alexander Rumyantsev (2001–2005). Now the Agency is directed by Sergei Kiriyenko....


November 30, 2005, DEBKAfile: Does the abrupt sacking of Alexander Rumyantsev, Russian nuclear energy minister, signal a turnaround in Moscow`s policy on Iran’s nuclear program?
...Washington and Jerusalem are disturbed by the abrupt firing of Alexander Rumyantsev as head of the Russian Agency for Atomic Energy, Rosatom, a job he held four years. Russian president Vladimir Putin offered no explanation for his replacement by a former Russian prime minister, Sergei Kiriyenko, who has no experience in the nuclear energy field....

...sources in Washington and Moscow report the sacked minister was trusted by the US and Israeli governments to stand firm against letting Iran have Russian technological assistance for building a nuclear weapon. Rumyantsev, who is Jewish, was also trusted by Israeli officials concerned with Iran’s nuclear activities, after Iran was obliged on his initiative to return the fuel rods from the Russian-built atomic reactor in Bushehr.

...US and Israeli officials fear that Rumyantsev’s dismissal means that Putin is reviewing Moscow’s nuclear relations with Tehran and may be contemplating putting them on a less restrictive basis. So far this is only surmise....

Moscow sources report that Tehran took steps in recent months to damage Rumyantsev’s reputation:

...Russian auditors discovered that over a long period the Iranians had tendered inflated invoices for Bushehr projects that were never executed. Moscow refunded the sums to avoid a crisis, but found it was incurring losses. Tehran then promised the minister to compensate the Russians for their losses with fresh contracts for building additional reactors in Iran. The Iranians reneged on this promise and instead negotiated the contracts with China....


Sergei Kiriyenko
