Vitalina Zerny suspected of involvement in Shaltay-Boltay is Anikeev's civil wife
A resident of Ukraine Vitalina Zerny nicknamed Alisa, whom some media called a participant of the hacking project Shaltay-Boltay earlier this week, turns out to be a common-law wife of the group leader Vladimir Anikeev, known as Lewis.
As Anikeev's lawyer Ruslan Koblev reported to Rosbalt, she is currently in Moscow, where she has reecntly visited the FSB on domestic issues related to the detention of her husband. According to him, Zerny was never involved in Shaltay-Boltay.
Let us recall that on February 16, the press reported that law enforcers were preparing to indict a citizen of Ukraine Vitalina Zerny, who had allegedly participated in the group under the name Alisa. It was reported that Vitalina Zerny was a ‘woman of low social responsibility,’ who provided sexual services to Lewis, detained on the criminal case on illegal access to computer information. In addition, Zerny used to supply girls to other group members.
Lawyer Ruslan Koblev categorically denies this information, calling her Anikeev's wife. According to him, Zerny is suprised to read the information about herself in the media, and the fact that the FSB allegedly plans to declare her wanted.
As reported by the CrimeRussia in early February, a citizen of Ukraine – 30-year-old Irina Shevchenko (Alisa) – had been declared wanted as part of the investigation into the Shaltay-Boltay's case.
There are three alleged members of Shaltay-Boltay currently in custody on charges of part 3 of Art. 272 of the Russian Criminal Code, including Vladimir Anikeev (Lewis), Aleksandr Filinov (Shlyapnik), and Konstantin Teplyakov (Martovsky Zayats). According to the materials in the criminal case, the group members used to mine dirt on public figures and then demand a repayment, otherwise they sold the compromising information for Bitcoins via Ukraine or published it in open access.

Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
