A decision to render a Russian national to the United States has drew fierce criticism from the Russian government. Konstantin Yaroshenko was arrested in Monrovia, Liberia, by Liberian and US Drug and Enforcement Agency officers on May 30. He was transferred to the United States without the Russian authorities knowing about the case prior to Yaroshenka's extradition. The U.S. State Department said it had tried to alert the Russian Consulate, but the memo was faxed to the wrong embassy. However it's the manner in which the US arrested and rendered Yaroshenka that has the Russian Foreign ministry calling the case 'a kidnapping and abduction.' They also indicated it's a sign of 'open lawlessness' on behalf of the US.
