MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Russia’s ministry of justice said on Friday it has received Ukraine’s request on possible transfer of Ukrainian nationals Stanislav Klykh and Nikolai Karpyuk who were convicted in Russia on charges of extremism and involvement in the activities of illegal armed units in Chechnya in 1994-1995.
The ministry said it is considering Ukraine’s request, adding that issues of the transfer of sentenced persons between Russia and Ukraine are regulated by the 1983 Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and Russia’s Code of Criminal Procedure.
A court in Chechnya’s capital Grozny sentenced two members of the Ukrainian ultra-nationalistic organization UNA-UNSO, Nikolai Karpyuk and Stanisalv Klyh, to long prison terms on charges of participation in combat actions on the territory of Chechnya in 1994 and 1995.
Karpyuk was sentenced to 22.5 years in a high security jail and Klyh, to 20 years. Karpyuk and another nationalist Alexander Muzychko headed the Viking criminal group, which comprised a number of UNA-UNSO members: Dmitry Yarosh, Yuri Dolzhenko, Alexander Malofeyev, Stanislav Klykh and others. In a period from December 1994 to January 1995, Karpyuk, Klykh and Malofeyev together with other gangs’ members took an active part in clashes with Russian servicemen in the territory of the presidential palace, the Minutka Square and the Grozny railway station. They killed about 30 servicemen. At least 13 military received injuries of various degrees of gravity.
