Pyotr Levashev said that as he is a Russian officer, he could be killed in the American prison.

The court in Madrid passed a decision on the extradition of Russian Pyotr Levashov, accused of hacker attacks, in the USA.

Levashov himself asked not to extradite him to America as he is afraid that he “would be subjected to tortures” or would be killed within a year. Otherwise, he will commit suicide.

“I am an officer of the Russian army, I have a confidential military specialty and I gave a subscription about nondisclosure,” Levashov said in court, without giving details of military service, however noting that for the last 10 years he has been working for United Russia, collecting information about the opposition.
