Yanukovych Wanted by Interpol

The International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol, said on Monday it had put Ukraine's ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, his son Alexander and former prime minister Nikolai Azarov on wanted list, TASS reported.
The charges listed by Interpol appear to relate to the current Ukrainian government's allegations that Yanukovych siphoned government funds. Interpol issued the Red Notice for Yanukovych. The Red Notice is the instrument to seek the location and arrest of a wanted person with a view to his/her extradition.
The notice comes after Ukraine's general prosecutor announced in December that Interpol had refused to place Yanukovych on its wanted list. According to the Kyiv Post, Interpol feared the charges were politically motivated.
After giving several press conferences in Russia, in which he was defiant against his ejection, Yanukovych kept a low profile in Russia last year.
On December 30, film director Oliver Stone posted pictures of himself with the former Ukrainian leader on Facebook after what he said was an interview in Moscow.
