MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. Russia hails Finland's decision to release Russian national Yury Yefremov as the decision was taken proceeding from the fact that the United States had not provided sufficient evidence, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Ombudsman for Human Rights, Democracy and Supremacy of the Law Konstantin Dolgov told TASS on Wednesday.
"We welcome this decision of the Finnish authorities as it was taken on the basis of insufficient evidence provided by the United States which had been pushing for Yefremov's extradition to the US," Dolgov said.
At the same time, Dolgov said that Finland was holding another three Russians, who were arrested at the requests of the US.
"We are hopeful that the Finnish authorities will reveal the same responsible attitude towards these Russians and will also take a decision not to extradite them to the US," he said.
