BELGRADE, July 30. /Itar-Tass /. The Supreme Court of Belgrade adopted the decision to extradite 30-year-old Russian citizen Ilya Goryachev accused of masterminding several high-profile murders, according to Serbian media. The lawyers of ultras group “Russky Obraz ” /”Russian Image”/ ex-leader has already declared its intention to appeal this decision. “We plan to insist on its reversal once again,” lawyer Fedja Dimovich is quoted by media.
