BANGKOK, December 18. /TASS/. Three Russian citizens have been detained in Thailand at the request of the United States in the last three years, head of the Consulate Department of the Russian Embassy in Thailand Vladimir Pronin told reporters on Tuesday.

 

"Only in the last three years, three Russians have been detained in Thailand at the US’ request, two of them - in 2018," he stressed. "In all three cases, the US accused them of alleged cybercrimes: hacking, stealing or laundering money via the Internet."

 

The diplomat added that the verdict concerning the extradition of Russian citizen Dmitry Ukrainsky, who had been sentenced to ten years of prison in Thailand on money laundering charges, to the US, will be announced on February 20, 2019.

Russian citizen Dmitry Ukrainsky

Interesting that in April 2016 Russian investigators believed that Dmitry Ukrainsky broke Russian law and must be extradited to Russia. 

"If this is true, the investigation must be carried out in Russia and the relevant judicial processes need to take place in Russia. If the Americans are interested in fighting crime, let's do it together within the legal framework and by the rules," https://sputniknews.com/world/201608041043928093-russia-thailand-usa-ukranisky/

Sounded like a Russian ploy to get Dmitry out of Thailand and out of the reach of the US.
