Terrorist Basayev's gang member extradited to Russia
Slovakia has extradited Aslan Yandiev.
The Slovak authorities granted the request of the special services of the Russian Federation and extradited 40-year-old native of Ingushetia Aslan Yandiev, who was put on the international wanted list for alleged involvement in a series of terrorist attacks in Vladikavkaz. The Public Relations Center of the FSB reports this.
According to the department, Yandiev was a member of Shamil Basayev's gang.
"Russia’s FSB, together with the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Russian Interior Ministry’s National Central Bureau of Interpol and Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service, organized the extradition of Yandiyev (born in 1978) from Slovakia to Russia," the message says.
The FSB alleges that Yandiev was involved in organizing and committing a series of terrorist attacks using improvised explosive devices in Vladikavkaz in 2006; civilians left dead.
Yandiev evaded criminal prosecution by absconding from the country in 2010 using a fake passport and an attempt to legalize his status in Switzerland, the Netherlands and other European countries, but in 2011 he was detained in Slovakia and placed under extradition arrest.
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
