Ukraine is considering requesting that the Serbian authorities extradite Andriy Naumov, a former high ranking Ukrainian intelligence agent, who is currently detained in Serbia under suspicion of money laundering, Radio Free Europe reported on July 21 citing Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office.

Naumov was arrested on June 7 while attempting to cross from Serbia to North Macedonia. Diamonds as well as hundreds of thousands of euros and dollars were found in his possession at the time, and he has been in police custody ever since.

While Naumov is being investigated for money laundering by the High Prosecutor’s Office in Nis, the Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s Office has stated it is in the process of conducting pre-trial criminal proceedings against Naumov for grand treason.

Naumov fled Ukraine on Feb. 23, several hours before Russia invaded the country.
