According to the paper, Switzerland rejected the most extradition requests, 22 in number, because according to the Alpine country, it cannot be guaranteed that the Russian legislature would act legally in these cases.
Kommersant then goes on to list at length which Western country has refused to extradite how many “criminals”, basically explaining the decision with “Russophobia” in all cases. The persons affected by the extradition requests can be connected in some way to the Russian-Ukrainian war or to the Russian economy.
In the case of our country, Moscow received a negative answer four times.
In almost all cases, Western states justified their decision in a similar way: the rights and safety of persons affected by the extradition request are not guaranteed in Russia.
