MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. Russia is ready to extradite cyber criminals to the United States on a reciprocal basis, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with the program, Moscow. Kremlin. Putin, on the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
A fragment of Putin’s interview was posted on the smotrim.ru website on Sunday.
"If we agree on the extradition of criminals, then Russia will naturally do that but only if the other side, in this case, the United States, agrees to the same and will also extradite corresponding criminals to the Russian Federation," Putin said.
Such understandings are formalized in corresponding interstate relations where "the sides assume certain commitments," the Russian president said.
"In an overwhelming majority of cases, they are equitable. Both sides assume equal commitments," Putin explained.
The Russian leader called cybersecurity one of the most important issues.
"Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing issues today because any disconnections of whole systems entail very grave consequences and this turns out to be possible," the Russian leader said.
