Recall that in some of the largest cities of Russia because of anonymous calls about bombs (they did on Monday night) began to conduct mass evacuation of people. “Victims of” cyber-terrorists turned out to be schools, Universities, railway stations, office buildings, shopping centers, Bryansk, Vladivostok, Magadan, Omsk, Perm, Ryazan, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

Now we can say, most of all went to Perm. On Tuesday morning there were evacuated more than 5.7 thousand people. According to preliminary data, the evacuation was carried out in ten schools, Perm state University, several shopping centers, bus, railway station “Perm-2” and residential home.

According to a leading expert on competitive intelligence Andrei Masalovich, pobesedovali on Tuesday with “MK” all these attacks are political in nature.

– No country in our time of need no competitor. Any country will live in peace next to the neighbor only if he is sick, weak and dependent on others. Direct war is not possible today, at the forefront of the so-called “war of the wallets”… If you noticed, with the help of the Internet it is much easier to destabilize than to hold her. In other words, with the help of Internet, you can easily shift policy to block the mine, bring the people to the streets to influence the outcome of elections, etc. the range for this maturing in 2018 we will have presidential elections, – said the expert, adding that in the first place will bet on youth.

– Will be debugged via social mechanisms of influence on youth and adolescents. Will be all that they took to the streets, getting into fights with the police, climb where is not necessary. However, it will be to check the “by heart” all the places where a small force can achieve maximum destabilization. These are the airports, train stations… plenty of places to cause local chaos. You need just one anonymous phone call. At the same time, you can catch up with the aura of mystery that it was not clear what exactly the power behind it. You can make it so that it lasted long enough to make it clear that just because the situation will not leave. About how I, of course, says I will not, – said the expert.

As for the recent attack on a Russian city, it is sure Masalovich, are the political forces.

– I do not think that this was some scattered forces. The hacker is a loner, usually pursuing economic interest. Extremely rare politically motivated hackers single. This romantic era has passed. We see the result of a coordinated, socially-oriented political force, I think, not of Russian origin. Or Russian, but purchased, – said the interlocutor of “MK”.

According to experts, you should not relax. In an election year, and especially in 2018 such attacks will only intensify.

– In the media today, if not every day, once a week, there will be issues associated with such attempts at destabilization. Will happen that is why many people immediately feel not comfortable… Now we can say that we are faced with a completely new technique of destabilization. Although mass Russian audience began to try to rock not this year.
