Leader of Shaltay-Boltay forged Timakova and Kiselyov's correspondence
Vladimir Anikeev told that he made changes to the correspondence of officials stolen by hackers.
Condemned head of hacker group Shaltay-Boltay Vladimir Anikeev on interrogations admitted that he corrected the correspondence belonging to Dmitry Medvedev's press secretary Natalya Timakova, TV host Dmitry Kiselyov, deputy chief of Management of the domestic policy of Presidential Administration Timur Prokopenko, Assistant to the President Andrey Belousov and head of the directorate of Sberbank Evgeny Kislyakov.
According to Anikeev, he made changes to the stolen document to involve attention in the activity of the hacker group. But Anikeev did not specify what exactly he has changed.
According to sources of RBC, the leader of Shaltay-Boltay also told that another participant of the group Aleksey Glazastikov who absconds in Estonia also edited the correspondence.
To recall, Vladimir Anikeev admitted his guilt and in July of this year was sentenced to two years of the colony. He was accused of part 3 Art. 272 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal access to the computer information protected by the law which has caused large damage and made by organized group by previous concert or a person with use of the official position). The trial of other participants of the group will take place in the nearest future.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
