ODESA - The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office will not extradite Adam Osmayev, the main suspect behind a terror plot against Russian President Vladimir Putin, before the European Court of Human Rights rules on the legality of his extradition, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said.

"We will wait for this (ECHR) decision and after that the Prosecutor General's Office will make its own decisions," the prosecutor general told a press conference in Odesa on Wednesday.
