A Ukrainian court this month ruled that Adam Osmayev should
be extradited to Russia but he challenged the ruling in the
Strasbourg-based court. He has denied plotting to blow up Putin.
“Ukraine has suspended Adam Osmayev’s extradition. The
Prosecutor General’s office on August 17 received a ruling by
the ECHR informing it that the court was reviewing Osmayev’s
appeal against the extradition,” Interfax news agency quoted a
foreign ministry spokesman as saying.
The court’s press service confirmed that it had notified the
Ukrainian authorities of the appeal and recommended, in line
with standard practice, that the extradition be suspended
pending its review.
