'The United States requested the extradition of two suspected Russian arms dealers, Vladimir Lyubishin Sr. and Vladimir Lyubishin Jr., pursuant to the US-Hungary Extradition Treaty," Nauert said. "Hungary denied the US request and instead extradited the suspects to Russia. The United States is disappointed in the Hungarian government’s decision to extradite the Lyubishins to Russia.'
The US had a strong case against the Lyubishin's, which was developed with the cooperation of Hungarian law enforcement officials, she noted.
Hungary's decision will ultimately make the world less safe, according to the State Department spokesperson.
