Wanted in the U.S., Dmitry Firtash Wants to End Exile

A billionaire Ukrainian living in Austria has told Bloomberg he wants to end his self-imposed exile and return to his own country. Dmitry Firtash, who made his fortune as a middleman for Russian gas exports, was released from Austrian custody in March 2014 after paying a 125 million-euro bond ($140 million), the highest ever in the Alpine republic’s history, after an Austrian court rejected a U.S. request to extradite him. Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote interviewed the Ukrainian Businessman.
