Vladimir Karpets was a convinced Russian patriot. Orthodox fundamentalist, monarchist, supporter of the Empire. For him, as for all those I consider my friends, the Crimea was our always – long before 2014. And has always been our Novorossiya, was and will be. We with Vladimir Igorevich was a common passion – the Empire as the ultimate expression of the Russian Order.
Empire is an art. It is the ultimate rise of the human spirit, embodied in the construction of an ideal State based on justice, brotherhood and love. Empire is as much connected to a single, but many here never ceases to be many, and maintains the distinction.
There was a video of the destruction of a military vehicle of the invaders off the coast of Yemen. Presumably, anti-ship missile hit the frigate class “al-Madina” of the Navy of Saudi Arabia.
Not without losses in men and equipment, DAESH has given stubborn resistance, hampering the promotion of the SAA to Tadif. But even with the current configuration of the front line, you can mention the threat to the environment group of militants near al-Bab, by connecting the Turkish and Syrian forces East of the city.
We don’t have the information about the accusations, even in case of Mikhailov. Here we can say what we want on the basis of the name of his subdivision – FSB Information Security Centre. We need to understand the target of the crime. Without it, we will offer versions, which are likely to be wrong.
In the absence of any hard information, two broad narratives have emerged to explain the arrests. The first is that this is essentially a case of espionage, that they knowingly or unwittingly divulged state secrets to the Americans. The second is that this is instead one of the regular ‘silovik struggles’ take place within and around the security agencies, over resources, seniority or personality. The two need not, however, be mutually exclusive.
The group of hackers materialized a few years ago in the information space of literally nowhere. The “professional” circles of them were not known, the group members themselves perfectly codified and living abroad. The participants of the “black” or “Anonymous International”, as they called themselves the criminals, have access to personal data of virtually all of Russia’s political and business elite from the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to the media mogul Aram Gabrelyanov.
Lefortovo court of Moscow extended to March 8 arrest of journalist Vladimir Anikeeva charged with illegal access to computer information, and which, according to the media, organized hacker group “Humpty Dumpty.”
“Decree of 28 December 2016 a preventive measure in the form of detention against Anikeeva extended until March 8, 2017,” – he said to “Interfax” court spokesman Yekaterina Krasnova Monday.
There are two versions of cooperation and a high-ranking FSB officer “Humpty Dumpty.” According to the first, Mikhailov was charged to establish who the “Anonymous International”, and find out, he led them to work, which provided substantial benefits to all participants. Blackmail officials and businessmen of their personal correspondence brought huge dividends.
According to another version, the original “Humpty Dumpty” was created with the participation of the aforementioned persons. But both versions say that the basic ideology of the hacker group was “business” – extortion of money from high-ranking officials.
Turns out all new and new details of the spy scandal with Big Data and CDC FSB. Authoritative American expert on cybercrime, has many contacts in the hacker community, Brian Krebs, presented his version of events.
