KIEV, August 23 - RAPSI. The Odessa Regional Appeals Court has issued its decision to extradite Kazakh national Ilya Pyanzin to Russia on suspicion of plotting to kill President Vladimir Putin, Odessa Regional Prosecutor's Office Press Secretary Yelena Abramova told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

The suspects allegedly planned to assassinate Putin after the presidential elections. Pyanzin and fellow suspect Adam Osmayev were arrested in Ukraine and charged with several crimes, including plotting to assassinate an official, organizinga terrorist act, and belonging to a terrorist organization. Both of them had previously been placed on an international wanted list.According to Abramova, the court held against Pyanzin's motion on August 20 to reverse the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office's decision to hand him over to Russia for prosecution.

Earlier, the court dismissed Osmayev's extradition appeal and upheld the Prosecutor General's Office's decision to transfer him to Russia. However, Osmayev had submitted an application to the European Court of Human Rights, which in turn advised Ukraine to suspend the extradition proceedings. Osmayev's extradition has been suspended until the Strasbourg court passes a judgment on the lawfulness of his extradition.
