Deputy Chief At FSB's Center For Information Security Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison For Abuse Of Authority

Sputnik/ Alexey Malgavko

Dmitry Pravikov, the FSB’s deputy chief at Center for Information Security, was sentenced to three years on charges of abuse of authority.

Kommersant reported Pravikov being detained on October 8. According to their sources, Pravikov got caught for “some act he signed with a miserable sum of money attached as a bribe”. He had been working for the Center since 2005. He was the head of Information Technology department at the time of the arrest.

Four more people from the Center have been arrested in January 2017: deputy chief Sergey Mikhailov, Ruslan Stoyanov (responsible for investigating Kaspersky Lab incidents), Dmitry Dokuchayev and an unnamed person are being charged with high treason.

The arrested were accused of transferring sensitive data to the commercial organizations which relayed it to the US special services. Stoyanov had a confirmed contact with Verisign company, which provides data to the US special services.

According to Kommersant, the detained may also be linked with the hacker group Shaltai-Boltai (Russian for Humpty-Dumpty), which is responsible for hacking statesmen and businessmen mail accounts.

    Zionist scum within Christian Russia. They should have all got 30 years in prison, not 3.
    Three years is like getting stood in the corner by your mother for 15 minutes, it will be over so quickly to even learn a lesson.
    Dmitry Pravikov reminds me of Genrikh Yagoda (Yehuda).
