Ukraine's far-rights demand to sack high-ranked official for extradition of Russian citizen

20:44, 17 September 2018

Activists of Ukraine's far-right political forces tried to attack the building of Prosecutor General's Office in Kyiv. The disorder was caused by the decision of the Ukrainian authority to extradite Timur Tumgoev, the Ingush national and the Russian citizen.

The activists demand to sack Yevhen Yenin, the Deputy Prosecutor General who signed the actual permission. The protesters insist that Tumgoev served with Russian mercenaries and fought the Ukrainian troops in Donbas, which means he cannot be extradited.

The protesters tried to storm the building of Prosecutor General's Office, throwing stones and smoke pellets. The attempt failed, as the security used tear gas. Seven law enforcers were wounded in the clash.
