Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine asked Russia for extradition of thief in law Tyurik
The request was sent on October, 9. The answer has not been received yet.
The General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine (GPU) asked Russia to extradite thief in law Vladimir Tyurin, known as Tyurik. This is reported by Ukrainian News referring to sources in the Prosecutor's Office.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office considers Tyurin as the customer of the murder of runaway ex-State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov. In the past, Tyurin was a civil husband of Maria Maksakova, the widow of a murdered politician. According to the GPU, in addition to personal motives, the FSB could give orders too. Maria Maksakova concurred the GPU.
Also the GPU named other organizers of the murder. Among them there are son of the alleged customer Dmitry Tyurin, head of the criminal gang Yuri Vasilenko and co-organizer Alexander Los. The perpetrator of the murder was named Pavel Parshov, and his accomplices were Yaroslav Tarasenko and Yaroslav Levents.
Attorney General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said about Tyurin's involvement in the murder on October 9. After that, Tyurin voluntarily appeared in the Main Investigation Department of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation and stated that he had no motives for killing Voronenkov. According to him, he did not dislike or have feelings of jealousy for Voronenkov. Moreover, Tyurin stated that he had never been acquainted with a fluent deputy. He also denied any links with the secret services.
It was also reported that Russia couldn’t extradite Tyurin at the request of Ukraine, as it contradicts the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. According to Art. 13 of the Code, citizens of the Russian Federation who committed a crime in the territory of a foreign state are not subject to extradition to this state.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) of Russia has been rocked by new scandals. Several regional FPS bosses and Nikolai Barinov, a former deputy head of the agency, have been detained for bribe-taking. What could be the consequences of these high-profile arrests for the penitentiary service as a whole and for its Director Gennady Kornienko?
