MILAN (AP) — Milan prosecutors say there is no evidence of Russian secret services involvement in the escape from Italian custody of a Russian businessman wanted by the U.S. on sanctions-busting charges. Prosecutors on Wednesday said two suspects have been arrested, one in northern Italy and another in Croatia. Another four are being sought, but prosecutors say so far there is no sign of Russian secret service involvement. Artyom Uss, the 40-year-old son of a Russian governor, escaped house arrest near Milan last March. He had been arrested five months earlier at a Milan airport trying to board a flight to Istanbul.
