The Washington Post on August 14, 2013 released the following:

“By Associated Press,

VILNIUS, Lithuania — A Lithuanian court has ordered the extradition of a Russian suspected illegal arms dealer to the United States, where he faces criminal charges and up to 20 years in prison.

The Vilnius Court of Appeal said Wednesday that Dmitry Ustinov, who was arrested at Vilnius International Airport in April at the request of the U.S. Department of Justice, should be handed over to American officials within 10 days. The decision cannot be appealed.

Prosecutors said the 47-year-old is suspected of smuggling and operating a group which attempted to export military equipment illegally.

The case has been closely watched by Moscow, which had demanded that Ustinov not be extradited.”
