The lawyer told reporters on Saturday that he learnt about the
detention of Melnychenko from media reports, as he did not have contacts
with his client.

He also does not rule out that Melnychenko could be extradited to
Ukraine and would be at once delivered to Shevchenkivsky District Court
in Kyiv to punish him. However, he said that the Prosecutor General’s
Office is to inform the defence party on the actions so the lawyer could
be present at a court hearing.

“If Melnychenko were extradited to the United States, he cannot be
sent to Ukraine, as the United States and Ukraine do not have an
agreement on extradition of people on wanted lists. In addition, the key
factor is the witness protection program applied to Melnychenko and his
family members in the Untied States,” Nedilko said.
