Are victims allowed to extradite suspects?

So accoriding to the New York Times, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko wants Russia to turn over 3 men who he suspects were involved in poisoning him with dioxin during his 2004 presidential campaign...I remember the orange revolution. I remember hope...Yushchenko believes that the testimony of the the 3 men is crucial in closing the case.

I mean, he's the president, who else is going to call for an extradition? But he's directly involved in the case. And, if I was that good looking and someone made me that ugly, I don't know that I would be rational or abide by the law entirely. Is there a precendent for this? Seriously, international law students, I want some answers. Get to posting comments.
