The spokespersons of Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the
Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the
Commission, and Stefan Fule, the EU Commissioner for Enlargement and
European Neighborhood Policy, said this in a joint statement issued on
August 17.

“High Representative Catherine Ashton and Commissioner Stefan Fule
are deeply concerned at news that an individual from the Russian
Federation (Republic of Ingushetia) recognized as a refugee under
international law was extradited from Ukraine on August15,” the
statement reads.

According to the EU officials, they fully support the conclusion of
Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that
this case demonstrates a breach in the obligation to respect the
principle of non-refoulement.
