Ukrainsky, 44, was detained in Thailand on July 21 at the request of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on suspicion of credit card fraud. Bangkok had not notified Moscow of the detention.

US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents were present during the detention of Russian citizen Dmitry Ukrainsky’s in Thailand, Ukrainsky said Friday.

"During the arrest there were two Americans who said they were FBI staff members and immediately offered me to go voluntarily to the US to stand trial," Ukrainsky told RIA Novosti before showing his written refusal from voluntary travel to the country.

Ukrainsky said he planned to fight his extradition in court, saying "I do not consider myself guilty in the crimes I am ascribed by the Americans."
