The leader of the project "Humpty Dumpty" Vladimir Anikeev (Lewis), recently released, in the near future plans to write a book - both about his adventures, and about the affairs of the hacker group. Of course, he has something to tell, but special revelations should not be expected. The FSB has already expressed an intention to conduct an informal conversation with Anikeev.
Vladimir Anikeev last months fought in courts of different instances, filing motions for release on parole, and on substitution of punishment for another, not connected with deprivation of freedom. Hearing was delayed, final decisions could be made by the time Lewis had already served his term. Help came in the form of a recently adopted law, nicknamed "a day and a half" (the day spent in pre-trial detention centers, counted as 1,5 days in a colony). The recalculation of the deadlines is carried out by the administrations of isolators, but they also take a long time. It was expected that with the fate of Anikeev in the jail "Lefortovo" will be determined somewhere in the early autumn of 2018. However, according to the source of Rosbalt, who is familiar with the situation, Lewis was lucky.
Recently, Lefortovo is actively replenished by officials arrested in Dagestan, as well as by persons involved in cases of state treason. There is already a certain lack of places. Therefore, in the case of Anikeev, who served time in the jail, the court decided to accelerate, which allowed the leader of the hacker group to be released in early August. In Moscow, Lewis did not linger, but immediately left for his parents in the Caucasus. There he will soon come to himself. Anikeev was so quick that the FSB officers did not have time to say farewell words to him. Therefore, they invited him for a preventive conversation immediately upon his return to the capital.
Probably, they want to talk to him and in connection with Anikeev's plans to write a book. First, "the case of" Humpty Dumpty "and the associated" Anonymous International "exchange (on which correspondence of officials and businessmen were sold) continues to be investigated. And some information should not be disclosed. Secondly, hackers who worked under Lewis's management "hacked" many more boxes of VIPs than known to the general public, studied a lot of secrets (including documents with the stamp "secret"). And to acquaint all with this data it is not necessary. Thirdly, Anikeeva wants to protect against a possible relapse. Therefore, the book is unlikely to be sensational, although the reading will clearly turn out to be fascinating. The circle of communication between Lewis and the people connected with him was very interesting. And sometimes the hacker group participated in serious "games" of the siloviki and officials.
Anikeyev will return to Moscow not to an empty place. He already has a job offer: Lewis's advocacy bureau, Koblev and Partners, has prepared him for the post of chief of the cybersecurity unit. Thus, Lewis can retrain from a hacker to a hunter after them. Such transformations are already known. So, in the development of Anikeev and the operation to detain him, an employee of the FSB FSB Dmitry Dokuchaev, who before the coming to work in the organs himself was a professional hacker. Now Dokuchaev, however, awaits trial on charges of treason.
In the materials of the case, the participants of the "Shaltaya-Boltaya" are officially charged with hacking electronic mailboxes of the following persons: TV presenter Dmitriy Kiselyov, Deputy Head of the Internal Policy Department of the Presidential Administration Timur Prokopenko, Press Secretary of the Russian Prime Minister Natalia Timakova, Secretary of the Magomed Magomedov businessman Elena Morozova, former top manager of Sberbank Yevgeny Kislyakov, presidential aide Andrei Belousov. At the same time, Timakov and Prokopenko are not recognized as victims in the case, since they did not submit the relevant applications, saying that hacking the mail accounts did not do them any harm.
After Anikeev was sentenced to two years in prison, he was not sent to the colony. This was done because there was still a trial of two of his accomplices, and Lewis was the main witness in this case. He could also be needed for interrogation of other "hacker" investigations. Moreover, earlier Anikeyev was interrogated in the frame of the case on the state treasury of the deputy head of the Information Security Center of the FSB Sergey Mikhailov, his subordinate Dmitry Dokuchaev, the employee of Kaspersky Lab Ruslan Stoyanov and businessman Georgy Fomchenkov.
As a result, Lewis served time in the jail "Lefortovo".
