US thinking about parting with Bout

US thinking about parting with Bout

US does not rule out extradition of businessman Viktor Bout, convicted on 25 years for trade, to Russia weapons, as well as the pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, who was put on 20 years for drug smuggling. This was reported by the head of the international non-governmental organization Conflict Awareness Project Kathy Lynn Austin.

"Attorney General Eric Holder is considering the possibility of returning Viktor Bout to Russia along with another smuggler of weapons and drugs Konstantin Yaroshenko," Austin said at a UN conference on the arms trade. According to her, this decision is detrimental to security in the world and against US interests. In particular, the extradition of an entrepreneur may prevent the investigation of cases against other arms dealers who were his business partners.

Recall that 6 July Alla handed over the wife of Viktor Bout to the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation a package of documents necessary for the extradition of her husband to Russia. The head of department, Alexander Konovalov, on Monday announced that the documents had not yet been sent to the American authorities. “We are negotiating through diplomatic channels about how, at what time and when it can be done,” the minister said. “Of course, everything that diplomats are used to doing within the framework of their authority to guarantee the rights of our citizen is done, facilitating his fate, as far as possibly within US law. "

Viktor Bout was sentenced on April 5 to 25 years in prison for selling arms and aiding terrorists. He pleaded not guilty and called the court a farce and tragicomedy.

Konstantin Yaroshenko was convicted in September last year of smuggling a large amount of cocaine into the US. The Russian rejects all accusations

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier promised to seek the extradition of Bout and Yaroshenko. “The fate of our people, no matter what accusations are made against them, worries us. We want them to be in Russia,” he said.

        Hello Alibek

        What bargaining is it about? Do we have someone to exchange?

        I think that we seriously believe that Booth is not to blame ............ Or ........ as if to blame, but on the instructions of the party

          Do you really think that for a simple citizen you would have fought like that ??
          Give you examples ??
          As for the job of the party, perhaps I agree !!
          I think for the sake of concessions on the part of Russia in the supply of weapons to someone, Bout can convey!

            Who knows how simple he is! In the media at one time, they suspected that he could be a military intelligence officer. You never know! Behind Kazan Suvorov, Moscow the Red Banner, a military translator, business trips to Angola, Mozambique and other African countries. Not a bad track record. Although I will not give my head for clipping!

    Such a feeling, if given, then either squeezed dry, or exchange or exchange.

    It is necessary to help Afghanistan so that all produced drug products go to America and Britain! To fill America and England with cocaine and other rubbish! To popularize the consumption of all types of drugs in America and England. And then watch how "a White House representative spends a drug addict day in the US Armed Forces." (Why, in the United States, "Homosexual Day" was held this year, and it's okay. Now the whole world knows that the US Army is fucking shit and shit).
    PySy. in 2012, fudge, powder box and tights in a large box became part of the military ammunition of a US soldier. For US special forces, high-heeled combat boots have been created. laughing laughing laughing

      The Customs Union of Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan is precisely designed to provide a safe corridor for drug trafficking to Eastern Europe, and through it to Western Europe. And the USA and England have always been drowned in drugs.

    According to her, this decision is harmful to security in the world and is contrary to US interests.

    But in my opinion, on the contrary, everything that does not contradict the interests of the United States is harmful to security in the world. Of course, if only they did not proclaim their country "peace".
    They know the crimes of Bout better than ours, and therefore they keep him at home - after all, this is their agent
