Together with & nbsp; him, 35-year-old Ivan Ermakov, 33-year-old Nikolai Rumyantsev, 43-year-old Mikhail Irzak and & nbsp; 42-year-old Igor Sladkov are involved in the case. “ Ermakov, Rumyantsev, Irzak and & nbsp; Sladkov remain at & nbsp; freedom '', & nbsp; & mdash; said in the & nbsp; message.

The prosecution claims that the attackers “ hacked systems, stole information '' in order to carry out an illegal insider trading scheme.
