A high-profile fugitive from Ukraine who faked his death and lived a lavish lifestyle in France has been arrested.

The man – suspected of international fraud and money laundering, and wanted in Ukraine – was held near Dijon.

According to BBC News, Europol says more than 4.6 million Euros in assets – including a castle, a vintage car and works of art – were seized in the raid in eastern France.
