Wow, that's a good arrest.

If Moscow at least gave off the appearance of handling these criminal acts, I could understand their complaint about the handling of their citizens with regards to criminal extradition. But as it sits now, I don't think they have a leg to stand on.

Good find.

The Russians are fond of pointing out that they don't have an extradition treaty with the US. When were they expecting the Americans to arrest him?
