European police agency Europol informed that a Ukrainian fugitive was detained in France earlier this month, as Deutsche Welle reports.

“The man, who was wanted for tax fraud and money laundering, was living a lavish lifestyle that included living in and owning a castle near the city of Dijon in eastern France,” the news agency reads.

Police officers seized $5.3 million in cash and luxury goods. In particular, a Rolls-Royce Phantom and three paintings by Salvador Dali.

“The man had managed to evade justice in his native country by forging death certificates. French authorities were tipped off to suspicious activity after the castle was purchased for €3 million by a firm in Luxembourg,” the message says.

Moreover, the suspect, involved in "large-scale corruption" in Ukraine, was detained along with three accomplices.
