PARIS, January 12. /TASS/. The International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol, said on Monday it had put Ukraine's ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, his son Alexander and former prime minister Nikolai Azarov on wanted list.
Earlier, Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote on Facebook that “Today, several months after Ukraine sent a request to Interpol in March 2014 with the arguments and explanations prepared by the Interior Ministry, the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Security Service of Ukraine, an Interpol special commission has come to a decision”.
Avakov said Yanukovych, his son Alexander, former Ukrainian premier Nikolai Azarov, former healthcare minister Raisa Bogatyreva and ex-finance minister Yuri Kolobov have been put on Interpol’s wanted list.
Interpol issued the Red Notice for Yanukovych. The Red Notice is the instrument to seek the location and arrest of a wanted person with a view to his/her extradition.
Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika said Russia had not received requests to extradite Yanukovych and other Ukrainian politicians. “When Ukraine makes such requests, they will be considered in compliance with international treaties and Russian legislation,” Chaika said.
