The judge ruled to send Russian Evgeny Nikulin on medical examination, so doctors made the decision about whether it is able to stand trial, said Wednesday RIA Novosti his lawyer Arkady Bukh.

«The judge made the decision to send for examination. Gave six months on the survey,» he said.

According to Buch, in the next two weeks the government will have to translate Nikulin in one of the specialized agencies, either in California or Missouri. The conclusion should be ready in February. Then there will be another court hearing.

If doctors will come to the conclusion that Nikulin is unable to stand trial, then there are two options, the lawyer explained. The first case – if the conclusion of the incurability of the condition.

«In this case there is a chance that the prosecution withdraw all charges. Either this is curable, then they will have to treat until you bring it into a state where he can go to trial,» added Boo.

According to the lawyer, verification is unlikely to end before the expiry of six months. According to him, the Nikulin «indifferent attitude» to the judge’s decision.

«By the way, to a psychiatrist who tried to do the survey, he also did not leave. The psychiatrist came to write a professional opinion, and he did not come to him for conversation. It was in a row several times. This is the basis on which the judge made this decision», — said the Agency interlocutor, adding that this happened in the last month.

Czech police in cooperation with FBI have arrested Nikulin in Prague on 5 October 2016. The Russians accused the American judicial authorities in illegally obtaining access data from LinkedIn and Dropbox servers and Formspring. Nikulin at the end of March was issued by the Czech Republic in the United States.
