FSB ISC officer Mikhailov arrested for treason retracts confessions
In addition, the source close to the investigation has confirmed that FSB Colonel Sergey Mikhaylov has nothing to do with the Shaltay-Boltay case.
Head of 2nd department of the FSB Information Security Center, Colonel Sergey Mikhailov has retracted his initial confessions.
According to Rosbalt citing a source familiar with the situation, now the senior security officer denies his guilt.
According to investigation, using their official position and, in particular, access to classified information due to working in FSB ISC, Mikhailov and his subordinate Major Dmitry Dokuchaev, known as Forb in the hacker world, used to transmit the information to Kaspersky Lab employee Ruslan Stoyanov and one more unnamed expert on computer security in exchange for a fee. Then, the information was imparted to intermediaries abroad, who later passed it on to foreign intelligence services.
The agency source noted that the transmission of sensitive information had been repeatedly carried out. According to him, FSB officers had conducted their illegal activities for 7 years, thereby causing serious harm to the interests of Russia.
Moreover, the source confirmed the recent words of the detained creator of Shaltay-Boltay hacker group Vladimir Anikeev (Lewis), transmitted through his lawyer Ruslan Koblev.
After pleading guilty to part 3 of Art. 272 (Illegal Access to Computer Information), Anikeev said that the employees of the FSB Information Security Center Sergey Mikhailov and Major Dmitry Dokuchaev have nothing to do with the scandal of the classified information leakage from high-ranking officials via Shaltay-Boltay group, also known as Anonymous International.
Let us recall that it was also previously declared by lawyer of one of the security officers arrested for treason, Ivan Pavlov.
The Rosbalt source also noted that "these are two completely different cases, and there is no mention of Mikhailov in Shaltay-Boltay's materials." According to him, they could only meet at the operational level.
