An appellate court in Ukraine's Black Sea port city of Odesa has upheld prosecutors' demands to extradite Kazakh citizen Ilya Pyanzin, a suspect in an alleged plot to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin, to Russia.

Pyanzin is a suspect in an alleged plot to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Pyanzin was detained in Odesa in February after he was injured in an accidental explosion of a hand-made bomb that killed an associate.

Pyanzin's detention led to the arrest of the alleged mastermind of the plot Adam Osmayev, a Chechen, whose extradition to Russia was halted earlier this week at the request of the European Court for Human Rights.

Reports about the alleged plot to kill Putin surfaced days before Russia's March 4 presidential election, prompting skeptics to say the plot was fabricated and timed to raise Putin's popularity ratings before the vote.
