Russian foreign ministry slams Nikulin’s extradition to US

02-04-2018

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has slammed the Czech Republic’s decision to extradite its national, alleged hacker Yevgeny Nikulin, to the US.

The Russian foreign ministry issued a statement on Monday calling it a “politically motivated” decision made to demonstrate allegiance, rather than a decision on the basis of legal grounds.

It said the decision would inevitably undermine Czech-Russian relations.
