However, there are those Russians who are accustomed to pay for the work of expensive lawyers. If we talk about the most popular, say, Russian lawyers among those who are accused of large-scale embezzlement from the state budget, here the first place can be given to such a lawyer as Heinrich Padva. This man is a lawyer of the ex-Minister of Defense Anatoly Serdyukov, and lately he managed to be noted for interesting statements about the actions of his ward, as well as other defendants of the sensational case of theft in the Ministry of Defense.

Such words were issued by Padva after the representative of the press service of the UK said that Serdyukov from a taciturn witness could turn into a talkative one. The lawyer does his job regularly.
