Italy: Footage shows prison where ex-Ukrainian MP Igor Markov is being detained

Italy, San Remo
August 14, 2015 at 23:24 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage shot on Friday show the prison in San Remo where former Ukrainian MP and founder and chairman of the Rodina Party Igor Markov is being held after his arrest on Wednesday. Markov appeared in court in Genoa earlier on Friday, reportedly refusing to accept extradition to his homeland when asked by president of the Court of Appeal Francesco Mazza Galanti during the court session. Ukraine has 40 days to submit an official extradition request to Italy.

Igor Markov's lawyer, Enrico Scopesi, confirmed that the former politician will not remain in Genoa and will return to San Remo where he will continue to be held.

Markov's case dates back to 2007, when he is accused of being involved in 'disorderly conduct' after his alleged involvement in an attack on an anti-Russian protest that took place when a statue of Catherine the Great was about to be installed near the Odessa regional administration building. He was detained in Odessa in October 2013 and was held until February 2014 before he was freed. After this, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry placed Markov on a list of wanted persons.
