Lithuania extradites Russian citizen to U.S.

PanARMENIAN.Net - Lithuania officially notified Moscow on Tuesday, August 28 that a Russian national had been extradited to the United States to stand trial on charges of smuggling military equipment, the Russian embassy in Vilnius said, according to RIA Novosti.

“Lithuanian Prosecutor General’s Office notified us today [on Tuesday] that Russian national Dmitry Ustinov was extradited to the United States on Friday, in accordance with the ruling by a Vilnius district court, upheld by the Lithuanian Court of Appeal,” said Alexander Mamayev, the head of the Russian embassy’s consular department.

On August 14 a Lithuanian court fulfilled a US request to extradite alleged arms dealer Ustinov to the US, where he faces a prison term of up to 20 years if found guilty. Ustinov, 46, was detained at Vilnius Airport in Lithuania on April 15 after he arrived from the US to purportedly negotiate a deal to sell night-vision equipment used by the US military.
