Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev is being questioned by representatives of the Russian Investigative Committee.

A source said that restrictive measures against the minister will be selected after he has been questioned in the capacity of a suspect.

"No investigative actions involving Ulyukayev were carried out last night. At the moment investigators are questioning him as a suspect. A restrictive measure will be selected afterwards," TASS cited the source as saying.

Ulyukayev was detained today on suspicion of taking a $2 mln bribe, that allowed Rosneft to complete the deal on purchasing the government's 50% stake in Bashneft.
