Georgian Ministry denied the petition filed by Russian Prosecutor's Office for extradition of Russian sergeant Alexander Glukhov who left the military unit in South Ossetia and fled to Georgia, the message of the Georgian Ministry of Justice reads, RIA Novosti reports.


It will be remembered a criminal case under art. 338 of the Russian Criminal Code (desertion) was launched against Glukhov in Russia. In May a request for extradition of the soldier to the Russian side was submitted to Tbilisi via the Swiss Embassy representing Russia's interests in Georgia. "As set forth in Geneva Convention on Refugees Georgia undertook to deny extradition of the man to the state where he is threatened with being sued. In compliance with the undertakings on June 16 Georgian Ministry of Justice denied the petition launched by the Russian Prosecution's Office for Glukhov's extradition", - the message of the Ministry of Justice goes.

Before Georgia received the petition for Glukhov's extradition the Ministry for Refugees and Resettlement met his request to be granted refugee status, the Georgian Ministry of Justice reports.
