Participants of hacker group Shaltay-Boltay – leader Vladimir Anikeev (Lewis) and his partners Konstantin Teplyakov (the March Hare) and Aleksander Filinov (Hatter), were arrested after hacking accounts of influential businessmen unknown to general public. This was reported on Business FM with reference to a source in law enforcement agencies.
According to an interlocutor of radio station, information distributed by some media according to which the expected leader of group of hackers Vladimir Anikeev was detained after its members ‘merged’ correspondence of special advisor to the president Vladislav Surkov in the Ukrainian media, is not true. He also did not confirm the version that arrest of persons involved can be connected with theft of documents of the Ministry of Defence.
Moreover, the source once again emphasized that arrest of the high-ranking officers of the Federal Security Service - Sergey Mikhailov and Dmitry Dokuchayev is not connected with the case of Shaltay-Boltay in any way.

Despite security measures, security officers managed to hack all messengers, to establish members of Anonymous International and to entice some of them to Russia. As a result of special operation Vladimir Anikeev, Konstantin Teplyakov and Alexander Filimonov were detained.
