Europe starts extraditing Russian suspects

The number of extraditions from the European Union to Russia has grown significantly in recent years, as a result of improved cooperation in international criminal investigations.

Within the last two weeks alone, Bulgaria, Poland and Cyprus have extradited three men wanted in Russia on various charges. It was the first time Cyprus responded to an extradition request from Moscow since 2004. Russia's Prosecution has hailed this new era of European cooperation as extremely productive.
