Moscow will seek a speedy return to Russia extradited to the United States from the Netherlands Russian Vladimir Drinkman, reported in the notes authorized by the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on the issues of human rights, democracy and rule of law Konstantin Dolgov.
Drinkman, accused of hacking attacks and the theft of 160 million credit card numbers, is located in new Jersey, to appear before the court. By assumption the investigation, the citizens of Russia Vladimir Drinkman, Alexander Kalinin, Roman Kotov, Dmitry Smilianets and Ukrainian Mikhail Rytikov for seven years penetrated computer networks of major U.S. and international organizations, of which downloaded data is more than 160 million credit and debit cards, which are then resold to third-party buyers.

He said that " causes severe discontent data on the decision of the authorities of the Netherlands to extradite to the USA at the request of the FBI held from June 2012 in custody of the citizen of Russia. Dolgov said that, unfortunately, the Dutch side have Not listened to the Russian arguments in favor of primary extradition of Drinkman in the Russian Federation on request of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation and the repeated references in this regard.
"Not heeded in the Netherlands and arguments for the protection of Drinkman, reasonably considers that the case is politically motivated and that brought the attention of the Dutch authorities on the violation of several articles of the European Convention for the protection of human rights and main freedoms in the case of a decision on the extradition of Russian citizen in the United States. But we pay attention to the fact that the police organization of the Netherlands claims to Drinkman Not there, " said the Commissioner of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on the issues of human rights.
Debts believes that Washington continues vicious violating the norms of international law the practice of extraterritorial use of American laws regarding Residents of the Russian Federation, without presenting evidence of the charges against them, bypassing the Russian-American 1999 Treaty on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters ". He showed that this causes more serious damage already embattled Russian-American relations ".
"As practice shows, in the USA the citizens of Russia are faced with the obvious bias of the local judiciary, routine violation of the principle of presumption of innocence, the fabrication of cases at the investigation stage, and ultimately unjust sentences," said Debts.
