– 5/11/2018, 9:05 AM Sputnik News, a Russian media outlet, quoted an anonymous source “familiar with the situation” that local criminals were plotting to poison the Russian suspect, Alexander Vinnik. He is reportedly now “forbidden” from receiving any items, and cannot even contact other inmates.

Sputnik’s source was quoted as saying that the threats began “after Vinnik’s extradition to the United States was blocked. There are people who are extremely interested in him not coming to Russia.

The assassination was ordered by some unknown person form Russia.” In December 2017, the Supreme Court of Greece upheld American efforts to have him extradited to the United States.

Sputnik’s source further said that Vinnik has admitted his crimes and is “ready to give testimony in Russia and assist the investigation.” However, per the Russian media outlet, Vinnik’s lawyer planned in January 2018 to appeal the extradition order to the European Court of Human Rights.
