Latynina Wonders About Bout’s Connection to Russian Government

In a recent opinion article in the Moscow Times, Yulia Latynina says many questions remain about accused arms dealer Viktor Bout's connection to the Russian government. Bout is currently detained in Thailand and is about to be extradited to the United States. Russia opposes Bout's extradition and Latynina wonders whether the United States is partly motivated by a desire to question Bout on his ties with high-ranking Russian officials. Questions still surround where Bout would have obtained 100 Russian anti-aircraft missiles to sell to Colombian guerilla group FARC, as alleged by the United States.
