Three members of Shaltay-Boltay hacker group wanted
They are charged in absentia. In total, six people are involved in the case of the hacker group.
Three hackers in the case of the Shaltay-Boltay gang are wanted. All of them are charged in absentia with improper access to computer information. This was reported by Interfax with reference to an informed source. According to him, at the moment six people are being mentioned on the case.
Recall that a significant part of the documents on the criminal case of the hacker group Shaltay-Boltay (Anonymous International) is labeled secret. The corresponding decision was made by the FSB, since the case contains a volume of email correspondence of officials stolen by members of the Shaltay-Boltay. Many documents also have a secret status, and some represent state secrets.
Leader of the hacker group Shaltay-Boltay Vladimir Anikeev on July 6 was sentenced to two years in a colony of general regime by the Moscow City Court. He was found guilty of Unlawful Access to Computer Information (part 3 of Article 272 of the Criminal Code).
According to the investigation, the hacker cracked the electronic mailboxes of Elena Morozova from the Summa group, top manager of Sberbank Evgeny Kislyakov, press secretary of the Prime Minister of Russia Natalia Timakova, general director of MIA Russia Today Dmitry Kiselev, employee of the Presidential Administration Timur Prokopenko, and also assistant to President Andrey Belousov.
At the same time, the general case of Shaltay-Boltay will remain in the FSB's production, along with other hackers - Alexander Filinov and Konstantin Teplyakov. The investigation of the case against all three has been completed; the materials of the case have been transferred to the Moscow City Court. In addition, the case is being investigated against the FSB Colonel, Deputy Head of the Information Security Center (ISC) of the special service Sergey Mikhailov and his colleague, the senior operative of the 2nd department of the ISC operations department, former hacker Dmitry Dokuchaev. Mikhailov and Dokuchaev are accused of High Treason (Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Representatives of the investigation officially stated that the criminal cases of Shaltay-Boltay and the intelligence officers are not connected in any way, however, according to sources, Mikhailov oversaw the activities of hackers and leaked information to them.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
