Russian hacker transferred to hospital for psychiatric examination in the US
The Evgeny Nikulin’s transfer took place “at the weekend last week,” after a few months of waiting.
Russian Evgeny Nikulin accused of cybercrime in the United States transferred to the hospital at a temporary detention center in Los Angeles, his lawyer Arkady Bukh said.
According to him, the transfer took place “at the weekend last week,” after “a few months of waiting.” Bukh noted that the new “conditions of detention are not bad,” TASS reports.
Nikulin will be examined "during Christmas and January." The medical report on the state of the Russian citizen is needed so that “the judge will be able to make intelligible decisions in the future,” said the lawyer.
Bukh said that the center "helps various patients, including the mentally ill."
Recall lawyer revealed what the consequences a survey may have.
In March, the Russian was extradited from the Czech Republic to the United States.
In June, Nikulin declared his innocence in a US court.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
