"The malefactor stole hundreds of millions of euros from the Italians and was hiding in different countries for many years. This spring, the Security Service of Ukraine detained him in a well-planned operation," - he wrote.
According to Lutsenko, it took Ukrainian law enforcers three months to complete the extradition procedure.
"Following the transfer of stolen works of art to Italy, this event is another step towards the strengthening of the cooperation between Ukrainian-Italian law enforcement agencies, which allows counting on Italy's constructive position in the Vitalii Markiv case," - stressed the prosecutor general.
