Mohyliov: Ukraine wants to speed up Landik's extradition from Russia
Mohyliov said that court hearings on this issue would be held in Russia soon.
"We will try [to bring him to Ukraine] as soon as possible," he said.
Landik was expelled from the Regions Party and the Regions Party faction in Luhansk City Council this week.
Earlier media reported that Landik had beaten up a young woman seated at another table in a restaurant.
This incident was recorded on video and the clip was posted on the Internet.
The injured woman, aged 20, is currently at the neurological department of Luhansk hospital suffering from concussion and bruising.
On July 7, the prosecutor's office of Luhansk region opened a criminal case against Landik on charges of disorderly conduct (Part 3 of Article 296) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on July 7.
Landik was put on the wanted list and was detained near Krasnodar, Russia.
Landik is the son of Volodymyr Landik, a member of the Regions Party faction at Ukraine's parliament.
