Employees of the MIA National Central Bureau of Interpol extradited in the "Sheremetyevo" airport to the competent authorities of the Italian Republic a citizen of Ukraine Koval, Vassily Bogdanovich, born in 1983. Italian law enforcement agencies issued an arrest warrant with regard to the extradited on charges of committing crimes related to organized crime (criminal activity as a part to a criminal group, organization of illegal immigration, extortion, armed robbery).
However, the criminal managed to escape from the Italian police, and he was put on the international wanted list.
During the search operations using Interpol channels, it was established that Koval under the guise of a freighter entered the territory of Russia.
Later, while attempting to cross the Russian-Ukrainian border, he was detained and placed in a detention center in Moscow.
