WASHINGTON, May 24./TASS/. The US authorities deported to Russia on Tuesday four Russian nationals, one of them on the international wanted list, Russian Interior Ministry’s representative to the US, Valery Etnyukov, told TASS.
"The US authorities detained these citizens for violation of its immigration legislation," Etnyukov said. He said the four were being airlifted to Russia on a charter flight under guard.
One of the four, Alexander Luppov, born in 1982, and a native of Russia’s southern Stavropol region, is on the international wanted list. Back in 2012, the Russian Investigative Committee’s Stavropol regional department put him on the wanted list on suspicion of sexual abuse of small girls.
The Russian authorities have no claims to the other three deported Russians, Etnyukov said.
