In the US, a Russian is accused of hacking attacks on LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring.
The Supreme Court in Prague approved the extradition of Russian Yevgeny Nikulin, accused of hacking the servers LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring, to the US on November 24, TASS reported citing Reuters.
The agency notes that the courts in the Czech Republic make decisions on the possibility of extraditing the accused to other states, but the final decision is taken by the Minister of Justice of the Republic.
The extradition of Nikulin is sought by two states - Russia and the United States. In the US, the Russian is accused of hacking attacks on LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring. Nikulin was detained on October 5, 2016. FBI officers participated in the operation to capture him.
Already after the young man's detention, in November 2016, the Ministry of Justice of the Czech Republic received a request from Russia to extradite Nikulin on charges of stealing $3450 from an WebMoney system account.
Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg has repaid loans in the amount of $1 billion taken from the Western banks. Earlier, his Renova Group had received state support from Promsvyazbank. Renova representatives say they have repaid the loan with the company’s own funds.
Federation Council member Vadim Nikolaev whose son had gotten into a fight strongly suggested that the other kids and their parents dropped beating charges, making it clear that he had already been to prosecutors and the ICR and “gotten it all dealt with.”
The businessman agreed to exchange the assets of Liwet Holding, through which Vekselberg’s company owned the shares of high-tech European concerns, for the assets of his partners Evgeny Olkhovik and Vladimir Kremer.
