Borodin stays behind bars, as Russia looks on. Someone may be interested in it…

The Brooklyn federal court in New York City has declined to bail off Pavel Borodin, secretary of state at the Russia-Belarus Union, before extradition hearings due April 2nd. So, the hopes of his aides have been dashed. In the meantime, protests earlier raised in Russia over Mr. Borodin detention seem to be further abating. Articles depicting his plight have disappeared from many newspapers. Russian Foreign Ministry exerts no effort to help free Mr. Borodin. Only Belorus's President Aleksandr Lukashenko voices Mr. Borodin’s supporters’ feelings on and off. It may well be that Mr. Borodin, who has been the talk of the town since Yeltsin’s times, has finally been given away – “out of sight,” as they say.
