Klintsevich: By demanding Mironov`s extradition from Armenia, the US  tries to drive a wedge between Moscow and Yerevan

ArmInfo. By demanding Russian  citizen Sergey Mironov's extradition from Armenia, the US tries to  drive a wedge between Moscow and Yerevan, says Frants Klintsevich,  First Deputy Chairman of the Defense and Security Committee of the  Russian Federation Council.  

"I do not know how substantiated the accusations against the Russian  citizen are. The issue can be addressed according to the standard  procedure. But in this case the matter concerns not only the US  common practice - the attempt to cover the whole world with its  jurisdiction," RIA Novosti quotes Klintsevich as saying.      

At the same time, he hopes the Armenian side will take this into  account when taking a decision on Sergey Mironov's extradition to the  United States. Meanwhile, Mironov's wife Yulia says that she feels  the support of the Armenian law-enforcement structures.   

She says that she has been allowed to see her husband and that her  husband has been allowed to meet with the Russian consul. "At the  same time, I understand that the Armenian side apparently had to  detain my husband, because it was an Interpol request," Yulia  Mironova says.    

To recall, Russian citizen Sergey Mironov, 30, was detained at  Zvartnots international airport in Armenia. The reports about his  detention came on August 27 evening. According to the Armenian  law-enforcers, he is on the international wanted list upon the US  request and now the Armenian court is to decide whether to extradite  the detainee to the United States or not. The trial will be held on  August 29. Mironov's lawyer Karen Nersisyan says that the US suspects  Mironov of arms trafficking and money laundering. According to the  lawyer, Sergey Mironov is an ordinary programmer and he has no access  to secrets.
