The extradition of Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash from Austria to the United States, approved by the Austrian justice minister, has been suspended over a motion lodged by his defense team to initiate a new hearing with the Land Court of Vienna, Wien Nachrichten said, citing APA.

The judge has granted the motion and now Firtash can be extradited only after the court adopts a decision on this motion, the media said.
