Nine European countries refuse to extradite wanted criminals to Russia, to cooperate with Russia even in the field of legal assistance and the fight against crime in a broad sense. These are Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Lithuania, Poland, Croatia, Montenegro, the Czech Republic and Estonia, said Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov.

According to him, these countries, for political reasons, refused to extradite to Russia persons accused, among other things, of committing especially serious crimes, reports RIA Novosti June 24 with reference to the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation. Krasnov called such behavior unreasonable, and Russia will not copy it.

“We will continue to implement all the necessary measures provided for by law and international treaties,” the Prosecutor General said.

Formerly Krasnov stressed the openness of the Russian prosecutor’s office cooperation on various issues. He also mentioned the fight against new challenges and threats.
