Evgeny Korovin, 26, was arrested in Phuket, but the date of the capture was not unveiled at a press conference in Bangkok led by Immigration Bureau Commander Lt Gen Nathathorn Prousoontorn.

Russian authorities alerted Thailand after knowing that he had entered the country, Gen Nathathorn explained.

Also presented to the press today was alleged hitman Andrey Dyatkovskiy, who was on the most wanted list of Russian authorities and on the Interpol list for allegedly killing several people, reported the Bangkok Post today. (See story here.)

Dyatkovskiy, 35, was arrested at a petrol station in Roi Et on last Thursday (May 25) after his latest entry into the country on April 25.

He had fled police tracking him to Southern Thailand before moving to the Northeastern province.

Mr Dyatkovskiy entered Thailand seven times, the last being in April, the press conference was told.

Fellow Russian national Dimitrii Shkuratov, 29, was taken into custody at a hotel in Soi Sukhumvit 11 in Bangkok on May 19. He reportedly broke out of jail and attacked wardens in Russia.

Anatolii Samodov, 56, was arrested at a condominium in Pattaya on May 22 after entering Thailand in June 2012.

Samodov was wanted for economic crimes involving state projects in Russia, Gen Nathathorn said.

He and other gang members allegedly threatened other bidders to pull out of auctions so he could win the projects.

Lt Gen Nathathorn said all would be deported from Thailand to Russia.

Dzyatkovskiy’s visa had been revoked while the other three Russians had already overstayed in the country at the time of their arrest, he added.
