Yevgeniy Yenin, Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine claimed that Russia extradited 90 criminals to Ukraine over last four years. Earlier, Head of Prosecutor General’s office Yuriy Lutsenko claimed that Ukraine extradited about 100 people to Russia, Hromadske reports.
The Russian Federation extradited individuals who are accused or condemned of having committed serious and especially serious offenses to Ukraine.
‘Among them, there are killers of the double prize-winner of the World Championship, there are those who accused of the murder of collectors, of rape of children and many many high-profile crimes,’ Prosecutor General’s office stressed.
Yenin noted that the existing mechanism of extradition, in particular with Russia, allows bringing to justice people committed serious offenses in Ukraine.
‘The problem is especially acute: either we extradite these individuals to the Russian Federation, or we groundlessly hope that these individuals reject typical for them occupation and won’t be doing the same things on the Ukrainian territory,’ Yenin summarized.
As it was reported earlier, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General's Office extradited Ingush Timur Tumgoev to the Russian Federation upon the request of the Federal Security Service of Russia.
The FSB of Russia suspects Tumgoev of participating in one of the radical groups in Syria. The General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine then decided to extradite Tumgoev. The European Court of Human Rights twice refused to suspend the extradition, but the UN Human Rights Committee obliged the Ukrainian authorities to suspend the extradition.
