Following years of hacking attacks on the online accounts of various Russian opposition figures, a man suspected of being the notorious hacker known as “Hell” — who is believed to have ties to Russian officialdom — is currently standing trial in Germany.

The man in the dock of a Bonn court is Sergei Maximov, 41, a German national of Russian descent.
