US ready to consider issuing Viktor Bout to RussiaThe United States is ready to consider the request for the extradition of Viktor Bout to Russia. This was stated by US Attorney General Eric Holder in an interview published in the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta". “We have agreements with other countries that allow convicts to serve their sentences in their homeland,” Holder said. “But if this is such a treaty. If we had a request from Russia that Mr. Bout would serve his sentence in his homeland, we would reviewed. If requested. "

Viktor Bout was sentenced by a US court to 25 years in prison. He was found guilty of trying to sell weapons the militants of the Colombian left-radical group, which in the United States is recognized as terrorist. Also, the Russian must pay a fine of 15 million dollars. Bout pleaded not guilty. A review of the appeal filed by the defense is now pending. Representatives of the Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier that they would do everything possible to return Bout to his homeland.

    Ah yes well done. As formulated something. He knows, son of a bitch, that Booth is not convicted in Russia and, therefore, has no time limit. Hypocrisy, hypocrisy and again hypocrisy. However, nothing else can be expected from these figures.

              Greetings Mr. Winston! In addition to such measures, a number of preventive measures must be taken, such as - In order to discourage such state litter as the Philippines, to practice the extradition of Russian citizens to the hands of amers, it must be made clear to them that such cases will not go unpunished anymore. For the purpose of a demonstration lesson, for a certain period of time, stop the trips of Russian citizens to this country and make similar statements to other potential state litter. At least the monthly absence of our tourists with their grandmothers, can discourage Filipinos from licking the ass of the whales with such a hunt, which they demonstrated by betraying Bout.

          I am sure that if Russia wants to free him, it will make it easy!
          Finding American booties and exchanging is not difficult!
          I was more struck by another!
          No one writes or says that it’s how easy Booth got at all ?? like a boy!
          it is incomprehensible to the mind that a * famous and experienced arms dealer ** would make such mistakes and suffer such naivety !!
          Well, I do not believe that such people were so easily bred like hares!
          The conclusion suggests itself that he is either not a dealer or not all the details were told to us !!

        Why is there such hype with this Booth? What super-spy is he?
        Maybe I don’t know something? He sold weapons, a risky business in which they kill. They planted it here.
        It is clear that the Russians need to be rescued from abroad, but with him every week there is some kind of news and everything through the central channels.
        I am not against Bout and not for him, it is simply incomprehensible. Explain pliz.

          The fact is that to judge a subject is possible only for those actions that he committed in the host country. Viktor Bout did not sell weapons in the United States to any terrorist organizations, i.e. He did not violate any American laws in the United States, and he is not a US citizen either. Therefore, he cannot be convicted by an American court. US laws apply only to the United States. The Americans violated this provision.
          Can you imagine that Russia would catch all over the world the Americans who sold weapons to Georgia, with the help of which she killed Russian citizens in South Ossetia and put them on trial under Russian laws? Nonsense ... Nonsense ... They didn’t sell weapons on the territory of Russia! Then you must catch and judge Bush and Obama in Russia and according to Russian laws, and sukashvilli is necessary.

            Clear.
            I don’t know if there is such a law in Russia, if not, then it should be adopted and acted in a similar way. That is, as you described - to catch sellers of weapons with which they killed our citizens ... or they are going to kill and judge in Russia, according to Russian laws.
            Well, according to Booth, you probably should not change him to amer spies caught from us, but diplomatically seek to send them to their homeland.

        Oh, it would be nice! Yes, only all this rag-tag is useful to the Americans when they are in Russia. And in the states, no one needs them even for nothing. Although, maybe for "five-o-clock" with polonium they will come in handy with the subsequent hysteria, as the Russian special services poison the democrats.

Well, letting go pays, anyway "ransom" to the amerikosy, only not from the state, but from a private person - all the same they profit if they pay ... And I he wrote that the "fine" applied to these people is mostly a ransom. Well, what difference does it make to them these lemons as a "ransom" or as a "fine" - in fact, the same thing will be ... himself in fact, he was selling arms - he would never have been stupidly released, and under no circumstances ...

    It’s just that the Americans helped their friend Sarkozy (trying to help) not to fly off the President’s chair! After all, Sarkozy openly admits his adoration of the United States. He is having a rest with his wife in America, which, by the way, the French Presidents do not do and strongly supports all aggressive wars. And Strauss-Kann had quite a realistic chance of winning. Here the Americans fussed too .... .......... it was not difficult to find a maid mired in debts and scandals, and knowing Strauss-Kahn's love for women, especially nothing was done
