Ukraine starts moves to seek Yanukovich extradition from Russia

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Ukraine started moves on Friday to seek Viktor Yanukovich's extradition from Russia after the ousted president appeared in southern Russia, the prosecutor general's office said.

Yanukovich is wanted in Ukraine for mass murder following the deaths of about 100 people in clashes with police and security forces during three months of protests.
