Ombudsman: Yaroshenko’s handover under Council of Europe’s Convention suits Russia

Reports about Konstantin Yaroshenko’s signing consent to be handed over to Russia from the US go in line with Moscow’s activity to return the Russian pilot to his homeland, Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law told Tass today.

“This information that we have received from the lawyer fits within the activity we are continuing to ensure an early return of Konstantin Yaroshenko to his homeland,” Konstantin Dolgov said.

“As we understand, he is ready to be transferred on the basis of the Council of Europe’s 1983 Convention. This is exactly the option we have been working on and offering to the American side for a long time,” he said.
