The US doesn’t need the truth – Russia’s Viktor Bout convicted by a US jury for arms smuggling told the VoR. He said that his trial is an example of hypocrisy and double standards. “Some American arms smugglers are even more guilty but they enjoy freedom” he added.
Bout was arrested in Thailand in 2008 and extradited to the US in November 2010 charged with plotting to kill US citizens and officials and supplying weapons to terrorists.
Bout will know the final verdict on April 5. He denies all charges.
Bout may face minimum 25 years in jail.
