Ukraine will seek Yanukovich extradition if he is in Russia

Ukraine will ask Russia to extradite ousted President Viktor Yanukovich if it is confirmed that he is in Russia, the general prosecutor's office said today.

"Ukraine's Prosecutor-General intends to raise the issue of the extradition of the internationally wanted citizen of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovich in case it is officially confirmed that he is in the Russian Federation," it said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Swiss government ordered the freezing of the assets of 20 Ukrainians, including ousted president Viktor Yanukovich and his son Oleksander, Switzerland's financial markets authority FINMA said in a statement.

The government published a list of the 20 people concerned on its website. It includes Viktor Yanukovich and his son Oleksander.

FINMA said the Swiss government had made the decision to block the assets on Wednesday and the measures would come into force on Friday at noon.
