Alexei Burkove was arrested in 2015 while visiting Israel and is wanted in the United States on suspicion of cyber crimes.

The Israeli supreme court also rejected Burkov’s request to be transferred to Russia and serve any sentence there, saying, “This is because it is not based on any cause of law which requires the State of Israel to do so.”
