In January, Lisov, another Russian computer programmer was arrested by the Spanish Police who was wanted by the United States for leading a financial fraud network. The U.S. Congress is also examining links between Russia and Trump during the election campaign.

Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin, have repeatedly denied that Russia tried to influence the election. According to the Yahoo News, Spanish Police had informed Levashov’s wife Maria that he was being held over a computer virus linked to Donald Trump’s victory in the US elections.
