On Wednesday morning in Prague, Police of the Czech Republic arrested Russian citizen suspected for hacking attacks on the computers of the United States government, the Police Spokesperson Lt. David Schön informed. Lt.Schön explained that the arrest was an effect of a cooperation of the Czech Federal Police and FBI. INTERPOL issued the Red Notice, a special arrest warrant for this individual, Lt. Schön added.

Czech Police would not disclose name of the suspect.

Twelve hours after being notified the police forces could arrest suspect in the luxurious hotel in the centre of city where he arrived with his girlfriend by car, the Czech Police stated. When Russian hacker saw the police officers in hotel lost his consciousness. Now he is receiving medical treatment in one of hospitals in Prague.

The Czech Court will soon make the decision regarding the extradition of Russian suspect.

The type of the warrant issue by the INTERPOL indicates that suspect is “really important” Lt. Schön suggested in an interview with Czech television TV Nova.

In the beginning of October the United States administration blamed Russia for the cyber attacks against the computers of the National Democratic Committee and leaking documents to the Wikileaks.
