SIMFEROPOL, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. There are no reasons for extradition of legitimate Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych from Russia to Ukraine, Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika said on Friday.

“Yanukovych is a legitimate president and there are no reasons for his extradition. He did not commit any crimes,” Chaika told reporters, adding that “there are some questions to new Ukrainian authorities.”

“They came to power illegally as a result of an armed coup,” the Russian general prosecutor said.

Ukraine's Prosecutor General announced on February 28 that it would launch extradition proceedings for Yanukovych's return.
