Head of the National Central Interpol Bureau says Moscow denies Yanukovych stays in Russia
Russia does not officially recognize that former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is wanted by Interpol, is in its territory; and is blocking requests for his extradition, head of the National Central Interpol Bureau of Ukraine Vasyl Nevolia says.
"We have repeatedly appealed and reported specific addresses, but there was no reaction from the Russian side," Nevolia says.
Speaking about the removal of Yanukovych from international search, Nevolia said that all requests from Ukraine and Russia had been thoroughly monitored, as there were many appeals.
As of today, Yanukovych's case is being considered by a special committee of Interpol. His card has been removed from the official website of the organization for the period of inquiry.
