NEW YORK, March 24. /TASS/. The Russian consulate in New York has sent a note to the US authorities requesting information on Monday’s detention of a Russian woman in New York, an informed diplomatic source told TASS.
An earlier New York Post reported that 41-year-old Viktoria Nasyrova, who has been on the Interpol wanted list on murder charges since 2015, was detained in the United States. Nasyrova is suspected of killing a 54-year-old woman in Krasnodar in October 2014 and stealing a large sum of money that the victim received for selling her house.
‘We still did not receive an official notification about the detention of Nasyrova," the source said. "The Russian consulate general in New York has sent a formal note to the authorities."
An informed source earlier said that in line with international agreements, the US side has 72 hours to notify Russia about the detention of its citizen.
