Russia announced that it would not extradite them to the Netherlands sentenced in absentia to life imprisonment in the case of the downed Malaysian Boeing. This is reported by the Russian “Interfax” with reference to its own anonymous source in law enforcement.
The interlocutor of journalists, whose name the media editors do not name for reasons of anonymity, said that the Constitution of the Russian Federation establishes a direct ban on the extradition of Russian citizens to foreign states.
“That is why neither one nor the second convict will be extradited” , – summed up the representative of the Russian law enforcement system.
The speech in the statement of an anonymous source was about Igor Girkin (Strelkov) and Sergey Dubinsky.
In addition, as the source of Interfax stated, the Russian authorities they do not recognize the decision of the Hague court, since the Russian side was removed from the investigation of the case.
“The Russian side considers the court's verdict unreasonable, since the preliminary investigation was carried out one-sidedly and tendentiously. All the arguments of the Russian side were groundlessly rejected,” the interlocutor said agency.
In addition, Judge Hendrik Steinhuis issued a verdict to pay the relatives of the victims of the MH17 disaster. Igor Girkin and his “subordinates” – Sergey Dubinsky and Leonid Kharchenko – must pay €16 million to the relatives of those killed in the plane crash.
