According to spokesman David Schon published a statement Wednesday on the police website that, Czech Police arrested an unidentified Russian man suspected of participating in cyber attacks on United States.
The arrest took place in a hotel in Prague city centre, without identifying the name by name or indicating when the arrest took place. The suspect fainted in police custody, was given first aid and then hospitalised, he added.
The Kremlin on Saturday slammed Washington for its “unprecedented” threats after US Vice President Joe Biden told NBC that Putin would receive a “message” over the alleged hacking.
Joe Biden said Washington would respond to the alleged attacks “at the time of our choosing and under the circumstances that have the greatest impact.”
NBC reported that the CIA was preparing for cyber attack “designed to harass and ’embarrass’ the Kremlin leadership.”
