Russian national arrested in Israel on US warrant, Moscow condemns detention

Moscow condemns the detention of a Russian national in Israel on a US warrant as an illegal extraterritorial application of US laws, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday. It also demanded a thorough explanation of the reasons for his arrest. The man, identified as A.Y. Burkov, was detained by Israeli police at Ben Gurion International Airport on December 15, with an arrest warrant issued by the US authorities. They “stubbornly continue to violate the relevant norms of the international law and the legitimate rights of Russian citizens,” the statement said.
