MOSCOW, April 11 (RAPSI) – Russia sees no grounds to extradite ousted president Viktor Yanukovich to Kiev, and he is considered to be the legitimate head of Ukraine, Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika told the press on Friday.

On February 22, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada (parliament) impeached Viktor Yanukovich and amended the constitution. Presidential authority was assigned to parliament speaker Alexander Turchinov and a presidential election was scheduled for May 25.

Russia has denounced the events in Ukraine as an armed coup. President Vladimir Putin said during a news conference in March that Yanukovych remains Ukraine’s legitimate president.
