“Considering the grave charges, we hope that our fellow-workers will show a fair legal approach,” he said, hinting at Russia’s refusal to extradite Mihran Poghosyan. Earlier, Russian authorities gave their consent to extradition.

On April 19, 2019, Poghosyan was identified in Karelia and arrested. On May 28, he was released, with an electronic ring fixed on his leg. On August 17, the RF Prosecutor General’s Office considered granting Armenia’s petition for extradition of Poghosyan impossible. Armenian Ambassador to Russian Vardan Toghanyan put it down to procrastination.
