Ukraine has every reason not to extradite Georgian Gia Tsertsvadze to Russia. This was reported on the Facebook page by the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko.
As it is known, Solomiyanskiy district court arrested Georgian Gia Tsertsvadze on January 17 in Kyiv.
Man was declared wanted internationally by Russia on charges of murder and attempted murder committed in 2003 in Sochi.
Tsertsvadze's wife, Tatiana Meskhi, believes that criminal history involving her husband was made up in Russia to get back at him for those special operations, which he held in Abkhazia, Tskhinvali, and then in Ukraine. Tatiana emphasizes that after the war in Abkhazia in 1993, her husband never went to Russia.
Lutsenko said that on January 24 he "personally spoke with the Georgian body as part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, with the Prosecutor General of Georgia I. Shotadze and the representative of the Georgian opposition G. Targamadze."
"Their appeals and analysis of the provisions of international conventions gives ground not only to release Gia Tsertsvadze from custody at the time of the extradition check, but also allow for the further decision to refuse to extradite this man to Russia, man who promoted the defense of Ukraine and Georgia against Russian aggression,” Lutsenko wrote.
Earlier, the prosecutor's office in Kyiv reported that if Tsertsvadze's participation in the fighting in the east of Ukraine on the part of the volunteer forces, he won’t be extradited to Russia as the aggressor country.
