Russian term or phrase: wozbujdeno delo
Protiv Konyukhowa wozbujdeno ugolownoe delo i 15 Iyulya, 1999 obyawlen rozisk
Aida Hakobyan
instigate proceedings
Explanation:
There is quite a number of ways to say "vozbuzhdat' delo" in English. Below are just some of them:

to instigate proceedings
to institute proceedings
to open a case
to process against sb.
to take actin against sb.
etc., etc.

I would translate, "obyavlen rozysk" through using the phrase "warrant of caption" (prikaz o rozyske i areste prestupnika), because it will fit your context very well. "To circulate" is another legal word for such an instance.

I would translate your sentence as follows:

Proceedings were instigated against Konyukhov, and the warrant of caption was circulated on 15 July 1999.

Explanation:
"To launch a criminal case" is a widely used expression, see, for example:
General Prosecutor s Office may launch criminal case against Yulia Tymoshenko
(http://kpnews.com/main.php?arid=6087)
Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov to launch criminal charges against his deputy
(http://www.allnews.ru/english/2000/11/13/case/)
prosecutors intend to launch a criminal case against Sheremet
(http://www.rferl.org/ucs/2000/08/12-030800.html)
(and many others)

Another possibility:
To institute a criminal case (New Rus.-Eng. Dictionary of Legal Terms; Lingvo 6.0) (but I wouldn't use it)
