The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine refused to extradite a member of the far-right Right Sector organization to Russia. Larysa Sargan, Spokesperson of Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko reported this on Facebook.
‘Today, Deputy Prosecutor General Yevhen Yenin decided to deny the extradition of a member of the Right Sector ‘S’ (man's alias, - 112.international), who was brought to criminal responsibility in the Russian Federation for participating in the war for Ukraine’s independence. As Yenin promised, not a single volunteer will be ever given in the hands of the aggressor,’ Sargan claimed.
On September 12, it became known that Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine extradited Timgoev to Russia, as the Russian federal security service requested. Explaining the decision, the Ukrainian side said that Timgoev was wanted by the Russian Federation as the ISIS militant; he allegedly served with the Islamic State fighters in Syria.
Tumgoyev twice asked for the refugee status in Ukraine, but the request was turned down.
