Ukraine to extradite Putin death plot suspect
Kiev: A Ukrainian court has given a ruling to extradite to Russia a Kazakhstani citizen, held as the second suspect for attempting to kill Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Prosecutor office`s spokeswoman Elena Abramova said on Thursday that Ukraine`s Odessa Court of Appeal has made a final decision to extradite Kazakhstani citizen Ilya Pyanzin.
"The court rejected an appeal by Pyanzin`s lawyer to overturn the General Prosecutor`s Office`s decree to extradite Pyanzin to Russia," said Abramova.
Two people -- Adam Osmayev and Ilya Pyanzin -- were detained in the port city of Odessa after a fellow suspect was killed in an apartment explosion there in January.
They confessed shortly after to planning to murder Putin at the orders of Chechen warlord Doku Umarov. The men were then charged with forming a terrorist group and plotting a terrorist attack.
On August 14, a Ukrainian appeals court ordered Osmayev`s extradition to Russia.
Under Ukrainian law, once the ruling has come into force it may not be appealed again.
The news of the attempted plot was released at the peak of Putin`s campaign to be re-elected as President of Russia in the March 04 election earlier this year.
