Ukraine to extradite suspected organizer of Putin assassination attempt


The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

A court of appeals in Odesa has upheld prosecutors' demand to extradite Adam Osmayev, the chief suspect in President Vladimir Putin's attempted assassination, to Russia.

The court on Tuesday found the defense lawyers' arguments insufficient and upheld the Ukrainian Prosecutor General Office's decision to extradite Osmayev to Russia at the request of the Russian Prosecutor General's Office, an Interfax correspondent reported. Osmayev is suspected of being involved in organizing an assassination attempt on Putin.
