"I was told that this week I could be put on the international wanted list… If that happens, I will definitely seek political asylum," he said in an interview with the Ukrainian Service of the BBC.

Pozhyvanov said that he had not yet asked for political asylum in Austria, but he did not rule out that certain circumstances could make him do so.
