ST. PETERSBURG, May 15 (Itar-Tass) — A detainee in Ukraine Adam Osmayev, who is a defendant in the criminal case over the attempt on the life of Vladimir Putin, may be extradited to Russia only after the investigation is completed in his crimes in Ukraine, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka told reporters here on Tuesday.
“There are several crimes, which they (detainees in this criminal case) committed in Ukraine. Under the effective legislation and agreements between Ukraine and Russia, the investigation in the criminal case will be completed in the country, where the criminal case is initially being investigated,” he said.
The general prosecutor noted that if there are some episodes beyond the authority of investigation in Ukraine, the defendant can be extradited to Russia in the future.
It was reported earlier that the security services in Ukraine and Russia detained two internationally wanted suspects in the attack on Vladimir Putin in Odessa. They testified that the crime was masterminded right after the presidential elections in Russia on March 4.
The detectives found that the terrorists arrived secretly in Ukraine escaping from the Federal Security Service. They were making explosives in a rented flat in Odessa that resulted in a spontaneous blast that triggered a fire on January 4. A terrorist Ruslan Madayev died in the explosion, another terrorist from Kazakhstan Ilya Plyanzin was brought to the intensive therapy ward with burns. Then he testified about the terrorist acts, which they were masterminding in Russia.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office sent a request for extradition of Chechen native Adam Osmayev to Ukraine. The Russian law enforcement agencies have wanted him since 2008 on accusations for terrorism-related crimes.
