Lukashenka: No runaways from Ukraine in Belarus


Ukraine's ex-minister of interior Vitali Zakharchanka and businessman Siarhei Kurchanka, who was closely linked with the Party of Regions, are not in Belarus.

'I've phoned President Lukashenka. I was going to ask him to extradict Zakharchanka and Kurchanka, who, as media report, are in Belarus now. But the President Lukashenka assured that they were not in the territory of Belarus and had never been,' the press service of the UDAR party quotes its leader Vitali Klitschko.

Meanwhile, Viktor Yanukovych and several other officials have been put on a wanted list, Ukraine's acting interior minister Arsen Avakov posted on his Facebook account.

'A criminal case has been initiated over mass murder of civilians,' it says. "Yanukovych and some other officials have been put on a wanted list.'
