A Russian programmer has been arrested by Spanish police for allegedly hacking the US election, according to reports in Spanish news.
Pyotr Levashov, was apprehended on the 7th of April in Barcelona and is currently being held in custody and could face extradition to the USA.
Mrs. Levashov is believed to have corroborated the story when speaking to RT, a Russian broadcasting company.
Russia’s President was accused of assisting in President Trump’s election victory, prompting the US President to comment “the election was not affected.”
US intelligence claimed that Russia were trying to undermine public faith in the countries democratic election process and install President Trump into power.
It will be interesting to see what news comes of this should the Russian be handed over the Americans.
