SUBJECT: RUSSIAN MFA ON ICTY PIFWC LIKELY IN RUSSIA 
 
REF: STATE 98266 
 
Classified By: A/POL Bruce Donahue.  Reasons: 1.4 (b/d). 
 
1. (C)  Poloff delivered reftel demarche June 19 to Andrey 
Kalinin of the MFA Legal Department.  Kalinin and his 
superior, Department Section Chief Igor Panin (who was 
traveling at the time), are the only officials in the MFA 
with a thorough knowledge of the ICTY and the status of 
PIFWCs.  Russia's Ambassador-at-Large for Balkan Conflicts, 
Aleksandr Botsan-Kharchenko, routinely refers us to the Legal 
Department when PIFWC issues arise. 
 
2. (C)  Kalinin told us that information the ICTY provided to 
the GOR on the possible presence in Russia of Vlastimir 
Djordjevic had been passed to relevant agencies.  Kalinin 
reported that the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the 
Procurator General, and various regional authorities had been 
investigating the information provided on Djordjevic, 
including several possible addresses, and had been unable to 
confirm Djordjevic's whereabouts.  He said that efforts to 
locate Djordjevic were ongoing. 
 
3. (C)  Comment: The Russian MFA has relatively little 
influence over the response of the GOR to presumed PIFWC 
cases.  We will continue to press the GOR to live up to its 
international obligations toward the ICTY.
