Russia has refused to extradite the ousted Ukrainian ex-President Viktor Yanukovych, that’s according to the head of a special investigations department of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, Serhiy Horbatyuk.
"Today we received a reply [from the Russian side] on the refusal to extradite Yanukovych, and so we will raise the question of how to interrogate him in the territory of the Russian Federation. But I stress this is only possible in a legitimate way given the participation of law enforcement agencies of the state," he said.
According to Horbatyuk, the ex-president has been issued a suspicion in seven criminal proceedings.
