An Austrian court has ordered the extradition of Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash to the US.

He was taken into custody on a European arrest warrant hours later.

He is wanted by the US on bribery charges.

After being arrested there in 2014, he was released after paying €125 million for bail.

He then remained stuck in Austria until this latest court order.

Firtash is Ukraine’s 16th richest man.
