Member of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine Vladyslav Kutsenko said, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.
"I refute resolutely the information that (Kolobov's - Ed.) extradition was denied due to the fact that the PGO had submitted some forged documents," he said.
"Indeed, a letter that had allegedly been submitted by the PGO was received in the course of the trial. But as soon as we received an inquiry on this letter from our Spanish colleagues, we immediately denied this information. We informed that we had not submitted this letter. Therefore, the judgment (on the extradition of Kolobov - Ed.) was not based on the forged letter," Kutsenko stressed.
"Our colleagues from Spain have held a shared view, it was their position, that there was insufficient evidence to say that Kolobov had done certain damage to the Ukrainian state," Kutsenko said.
