Prosecutor General of Ukraine: Kiev launched the procedure for the extradition of Yanukovych


"At the request of the investigator, the court gave permission for the detention of Viktor Yanukovych," - said in a statement released on the website of the Prosecutor General.

At the same time, the document emphasizes that international law obliges states to extradite to each other persons brought to criminal responsibility in their homeland. “Relations, in particular, with the Russian Federation in the field of extradition are also regulated by the European Convention on the Extradition of Offenders 1957 of the Year,” the statement says.

According to Interfax, the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine noted that a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, a citizen of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, is officially confirmed by its location in the Russian Federation. After contacting Moscow, Kiev is expected “to receive a positive response from the General Prosecutor’s Office of the Russian Federation in the near future.”

Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Oleg Makhnitsky said that he considered Viktor Yanukovych’s statements during a press conference in Rostov-on-Don “to be irresponsible and not conducive to political stabilization in Ukraine as a whole, and in the Crimea, in particular, and aimed at aggravating the current civil conflict on Peninsula.

Earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine announced that Viktor Yanukovych and a number of other Ukrainian officials were put on the international wanted list. According to Prosecutor General Makhnitsky, Viktor Yanukovych and former Interior Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko are suspected of mass murder of people during the recent riots in Kiev. The Central Investigation Department of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine opened criminal proceedings on suspicion of a number of persons in the organization of premeditated murders during mass events in the center of Kiev from November 2013 to February 2014.

The suspects in the case are Viktor Yanukovich and Vitaly Zakharchenko, as well as the former head of the presidential administration Andrei Klyuev, the ex-prosecutor general Viktor Pshonka, the former head of the security service Alexander Yakimenko and the former commander of the internal troops Stanislav Shulyak. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine plans to transfer Yanukovych to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

The president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, who was dismissed by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, at a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, said that he had to leave Ukraine because of threats to himself and his relatives. Previously, he appealed to Russia with a request to ensure his personal security. And, according to ITAR-TASS, the Russian authorities have satisfied this request.

    And we will launch illegitimacy maydanutyh. And it turns out that we support not Yanukovych, but the world order.
    And the most remarkable move lately is issuing our passports to Berkutovs. And it is human for the pursued purely of revenge, and it is perfectly visible a little fig with a ba-a-alshim fist for maydanuty fool .

      Good morning to all patriots of our country! good fellow
      Yes, with passports, the only right move is to provide protection in a legal way ("will it shoot"? And if it will "shoot" then how?
      And about the return of Yanukovych, also the only possible move, like he will remain president until the next elections, and he will fulfill all the agreements, that the opposition has promised (after all, the opposition is at the helm there (the question is how far radicals are represented there?) - and during this time (so far it is not legally withdrawn ("impecmented") - it will do something to bring the east and south closer to Russia ...
      It all depends on the reaction of Europe and the states, do they recognize it?
      And then of course he will fall down.
      And there’s no speaker from him, remember his debate with Yushchenko request
      And the press conference was pale ... crying

    What kind of nonsense are these Natsik benders capable of? As they say, God will not give my mind, at least they haven’t taken the muscles ... They don’t understand cormorants that if the GDP officially recognizes Yanyka, then in our understanding they will officially become the junta, everything ... a good special operation is to call them all to Moscow to negotiate a loan in the widest possible format, and then abruptly recognize Yanuk and, by his official appeal, detain their coupists ... that’s a joke ... wink

    Want to see Yanukovych in Kiev? Yes, without a bazaar. We will return, accompanied by "people in military uniform without insignia and very well armed." And all Banderlog Banderdets.

    In times gone, the bandits smashed half of Kiev, dispersed the government, and now they are also launching extradition procedures - an international theater of the absurd, and the funniest thing is that all the "progressive" and tolerant ones will imitate them, nonsense, it is necessary to arrange a gangster showdown in every progressive country and to recognize the bandyukov as peaceful human rights defenders, it is interesting to see the reaction of tolerasts.

    here I heard anecdote))

    A Kievite comes to work. Fingal is under the eye, but the muzzle is pleased.

    - What happened?
    - Yes, at night the doorbell rings, I open it - a dozen in balaclavas, with bats. They say that we are self-defense, information has been received that escaped snipers are hiding from you! Search and leave! - Well, I am an honest giant, I have nothing to hide, I myself had money for them and wore a havchik on the Maidan, I let them go. They took away everything of value, the furniture was stolen with bits, raped my wife, daughter, me, the cat. And then they got ready to leave, and the chief on my face with my fist ka-ak punched in, and said: - Oooo, aunt !!! - This is me auntie ?! My wife and I laughed so much, so laughed !!!

    It seems that in Ukraine everything is again within the framework of the laws of the "new order" of 1941-1944. To judge and investigate those for whom the prison has been crying for a long time. And the West always cares about the observance of the norms of international law

      And the West, as always, is concerned about compliance with international law

      They always cry. But, whatever one may say, Yanukovych is a legitimate president
      and besides everything else, they don’t want to talk to them at our Foreign Ministry at all.

    With what fright the legitimate president should be extradited to impostors. They themselves are awaiting the "Morning of the Streletskaya execution" on the Maidan.

    The little arms are short, they will not reach in any way. No matter how soon the Maidan people themselves did not have to be put on the international wanted list.

    Very funny. Extradition is the procedure for the extradition of a detained or arrested or captured fugitive convict. And who detained Yanuka? Who needs him tries in Russia! To the campaign, Sasha Bely managed to repel all the prosecutors.laughing

      So what can’t you do when people with machine guns poke your face in the face with your fist? Then they will justify themselves and tell how they were forced.

    The top of stupidity ..... In order for Russia to extradite Yanukovych, it is necessary to hold a trial against him, as well as provide irrefutable evidence of his guilt .. Mr. Turchinov still considers himself the first secretary of the Komsomol regional committee and us naive Komsomol members whom he lied about a brighter future and the victory of communism ??

    This was the first condition - the second - in order to conduct a dialogue it is necessary at least that the opposing party recognizes the State in you. Judging by Rogozin’s remarks on Twitter, Russia is not going to recognize the team in Kiev as the State, and, as Dmitry Olegovich noted, after February 21, the Russian Federation will take into account the opinion of Western Europe in the same proportion with respect to the Guarantor Promises of the Agreement of February 21 of February 2014. Translated into Russian - it will lay down with parting.

    I watched the Yanuk conference yesterday and waited for everyone to ask: decree No. 90 he did sign, and what forces in Ukraine recognize him as the current president. Calling yourself legitimate does not mean having real power. something like this.

      If they gave the floor to foreign journalists, they would ask, but they were strenuously ignored, but the "journalist" of "Dozhd" was given a question.
