The U.S. successfully extradited accused Russian hacker Yevgeniy Nikulin from the Czech Republic last week, winning a political tug-of-war with Moscow, which sought to return him to his home country.

Nikulin, who allegedly hacked and stole data from LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring, appeared in a U.S. district count in San Francisco on Mar. 30. He was originally arrested in October 2016 by Czech authorities. He has pleaded not guilty to a myriad of federal charges, including three counts of computer intrusion; two counts of intentional transmission of information, code, or command causing damage to a protected computer; two counts of aggravated identity theft; one count of trafficking in unauthorized access devices; and one count of conspiracy.
