Gusinsky is unlucky recently. He has failed to prove to Spanish Themis that his case is a political one. Spanish authorities stated that they were not to doubt in Russian law. The court also refused to change the preventive punishment of the media magnate. The investigator says he will consider the question of choosing another preventive punishment for Gusinsky but only after he is delivered to Russia under escort. To Gusinsky’s horror western investigating agencies share the opinion of their Russian colleagues.

More and more facts indicate that the extradition will take place.
