MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian citizen Dmitry Ukrainsky has been arrested Thursday, without notifying Moscow, at the request of the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on suspicion of credit card fraud. Ukrainsky, 44, denies his guilt.

"The situation around Ukrainsky, who was arrested in Thailand on the US warrant, is of extreme concern for us. The previous practice of hunting for Russian citizens, the extraterritorial application of legislation continues. Therefore, I am confident that the minister will express our respective claims to the Secretary of State when they will meet in Vientiane [the capital of Laos]," Ryabkov told RIA Novosti.
