The Prosecutor General's Office of Russia sent a request to Ukraine for the extradition of Magomed Dukuzov, who is accused of murdering the editor-in-chief of the Russian version of Forbes magazine, Paul Klebnikov. This was reported by TASS agency with reference to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.
"In connection with locating Dukuzov on the territory of Ukraine, the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation on May 29 sent a request to the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine to extradite him for criminal prosecution. So far, the competent authorities of Ukraine have not received official information on the decision taken on request to extradite Dukuzov, "the Prosecutor General's Office stressed.

'The Foreign Ministry does not hold the negotiations. Georgia is in my capacity but there were no contacts from the Foreign Ministry. Such requests are made by the Ministry of Justice to the Prosecutor's General Office. The Foreign Ministry does not participate in this process', Bodnar noted.
