According to the company, the Pro-Kremlin group Pawn Storm, also known as Fancy Bear and under several other names, was trying to hack the mailboxes of both Russian and Ukrainian public figures.

Thus, according to Kozlovsky, Google mail, recorded phishing attempts and have warned users about the attack, likely organized by the secret services.

Among those to whom the hackers have shown their interest, was, according to Kozlowski, in addition to himself, the Creator of the Fund “City projects” Maxim Katz, the founder of the site, The Insider, Roman Dobrokhotov, journalist Maxim Trudolyubov, an employee of Transparency International Elena Panfilova, the editor of “Rain” Ilya KLISHIN and others.

The list of names Kozlowski has more than two dozen names, but he argues that the ongoing wave of hacking has affected hundreds of accounts in Russia and Ukraine.

Recall that the Fancy Bear recently attacked the world doping Agency (WADA). The President of Russia Vladimir Putin, commenting on the accusations of the us press links hackers with Russian intelligence services, said that no matter who is involved in the break-ins, but more importantly, what information it fails to produce.
