Developer Oleg Tishchenko returned to Russia
He will continue to work as a developer of PC games.
Programmer Oleg Tishchenko, who was convicted in the United States for acquiring instructions to US fighters, returned to Russia.
According to Vesti.ru, his brother, colleagues, and journalists met him at the airport. Tishchenko told reporters that he would continue to work as a developer of computer games.
Oleg Tishchenko is a computer games developer who worked for Eagle Dynamics. In 2011, he bought instructions on the operation of the US F-16 fighter to create an aircraft simulator on the Internet. Five years later, the US authorities initiated a criminal case against him, and in early 2019, they obtained his extradition from Georgia.
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.
