Russian Foreign Ministry demands Adamov's extradition to Russia

A delegation from the U.S. Justice Department met with Russian officials in Moscow Wednesday to discuss the extradition from Switzerland of a former nuclear power minister wanted in the U.S. on embezzlement charges, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

The U.S. delegation, led by U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan, who filed a criminal case against Yevgeny Adamov, was presented with Russia's reasons for demanding Adamov's extradition to Russia, where he is wanted on charges of fraud and abuse of office, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

U.S. authorities have accused Adamov and his business partner Mark Kaushansky, a U.S. citizen, of embezzling $9 million allocated by the U.S. government for nuclear security projects in Russia, the RIA Novosti reports.
