MOSCOW, February 16 (RIA Novosti) - A Norwegian court in Oslo has ruled to extradite mentally-disturbed Russian neo-Nazi Vyacheslav Datsik, the local NRK television broadcasting corporation said on Wednesday.

Datsik, 33, was detained at an immigration office in Oslo where he appeared with a weapon seeking asylum on September 21. In late December, a local court sentenced him to eight months in prison for carrying a weapon.

Hearings on Datsik's extradition, which Russian prosecutors had been seeking since October 20, began in Oslo on February 14. Justice Minister Knut Storberget said in court that the Norwegian authorities were not interested in having Datsik on their territory.

Datsik, a former mixed martial arts fighter, was arrested in 2007 after a series of robberies in cell phone stores. But psychiatric examinations concluded that he was mentally ill and was therefore cleared of all criminal charges.

The martial arts fighter was involved in political activities as a member of the ultranationalist movement, Slavic Union, which was banned in Russia last year but had reportedly opened its office in Norway.
