Kyiv's Pechersk district court has ruled to take former Ukrainian Health Minister Raisa Bohatyriova into custody for two months, setting bail at UAH 6 million ($238,663).

Thus, the court has decided to satisfy the prosecutors' motion, according to a UNIAN correspondent,

Later it became known Ukrainian MP Vadym Novynskyi would stand bail for Bohatyriova.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on August 27, Bohatyriova was detained by border guards at Kyiv's Zhuliany Airport upon her arrival in Ukraine.

Bohatyriova had been on the run since 2014 after she was charged with embezzlement of budget funds in 2012 in the amount of UAH 6.5 billion (US$258.5 million) on medication and equipment procurement.
