MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office said again on Monday it had not received any request from Ukraine to extradite Ukrainian ex-president Viktor Yanukovych and other politicians.
Commenting on several statements made in Ukraine, spokeswoman to the Prosecutor General’s Office, Marina Gridneva, said, “I reiterate what the Russian Prosecutor General (Yury Chaika) said earlier. No requests to extradite Ukrainian politicians, including Yanukovych, have been made by the Ukrainian competent structures.”
“When such requests are made they will be considered in compliance with international treaties and Russian legislation,” she said.
“As for Mr. Avakov’s legally incompetent statements towards the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, we don’t comment the statements of individuals who are involved in the case,” Gridneva said.
Interpol issued the Red Notice for Yanukovich, who was ousted in 2014. The Red Notice is the instrument to seek the location and arrest of a wanted person with a view to his/her extradition.
