MOSCOW, November 8 (RAPSI) - Serbia is planning to extradite Russian national Ilya Goryachev, suspected of involvement in a Russian extremist movement, on Friday, Russia's Interior Ministry reported.
Goryachev has been put on the international wanted list in relation to criminal charges against extremists from the Militant Organization of Russian Nationalists (BORN) and others. The extremist group is charged with banditry, illegal weapons trafficking, and several counts of homicide, including Judge Eduard Chuvashov and lawyer Stanislav Markelov.
