Russian Ambassador: Issues related to the search for former Armenian  officials have a more legal and juridical direction than political

ArmInfo. Issues related to the search for former Armenian officials have a more legal and juridical direction than political. Russian Ambassador to Armenia  Sergey Kopyrkin expressed such an opinion in an interview with  reporters in Yerevan on November 22, asking him to express his  attitude to the fact that many of the wanted persons are taking  refuge in the territory of the Russian Federation.

At the same time, the diplomat called for addressing the relevant  authorities on this issue, for example, the Prosecutor General.

Answering a question about former Minister of Defense of Armenia,  Mikayel Harutyunyan, the Ambassador emphasized once again that he  refrains from political assessments, especially since he does not own  all the nuances of the case. "As far as I know, our competent  authorities interact on these issues," Kopyrkin said, adding that he  was not ready to make any political comments on these topics.

To recall, former Minister of Defense of Armenia, Mikayel  Harutyunyan, put on the international wanted list in the case on  March 1, 2008, is a citizen of Russia, and according to Russian  legislation, it does not extradite its citizens to other countries.  It is also known that on the territory of the Russian Federation  there is a former head of the Compulsory Enforcement Serviceof  Armenia Mihran Poghosyan, accused of money laundering,  misappropriation on an especially large scale and abuse of office.  Russian law enforcement officers detained Poghosyan in Karelia.  According to the information of the Armenian Prosecutor's Office,  negotiations are ongoing between the RA and the Russian Federation on  the extradition of Poghosyan.
