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.
