MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia is ready to provide consular assistance to gas producer Novatek’s deputy head Mark Gyetvay following his arrest on tax charges in the United States, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.

Moscow, however, is not in a position to interfere in his tax case due to Gyetvay’s dual Russian-U.S. citizenship, Peskov told a briefing.

Gyetvay did not return phone calls on Thursday. Novatek declined to comment.
