Russian state frauds raise questions about the US election



On Tuesday, a Russian military court issued long sentences to two best cyber security experts, Russian news agencies reported. Sergei Mihaylov, a former Federal Security Service (FSB) officer, Russian Intelligence Service, received 22 years of imprisonment, and Ruslan Stoyanov, a former employee of the Kaspersky Lab, was sentenced to 14 years.

Both men were Mihailov is one of the few FSB officers who have the privilege of traveling abroad and interacting with Western colleagues at events and conferences

The aggravating issues are the secrecy surrounding the case. The lawsuit is over, but the lawyer of one of the accused Ivan Pavlov has told CNN that Stoyanov and Mihaylov are involved in a two-year hidden treason case "on behalf of the United States."

from CNN to comment on the verdict on Tuesday, Pavlov described the sentence as "the worst case of betrayal in Russia's modern history."

Stoyanov's lawyer, Inga Lebedeva, said she would appeal "The boys believe that their activities against hackers have stepped on one's fingers," she said, according to the state news agency RIA Novosti, without explaining.

Russian and international media have long suggested that the secret time of the arrest ̵

The case against Mihaylov and Stoyanov was started just a month after President Trump's victory in the US presidential election. Soon after the arrests, the Obama administration imposed sanctions on the FSB and the Russian military intelligence agency GRU, as well as on the four senior civil servants. Special adviser Robert Mueller subsequently charged 12 Russian agents for plotting to intervene in the election.

Andrei Soldatov, an expert on Russian cyber security and intelligence, believes that the arrest of Mihaylov and Stoyanov was a response to the US furor over the Russian elections. Mihailov, he said, was FSB's top FSB officer responsible for maintaining contacts with Western cyber security agencies, while Stoyanov, on his part, was the highest point of contact in the Russian private cyber sector with the West.

Few details have appeared officially in the case over the years after the Russian media reported that Mihaylov, a former deputy head of the FSB Information Security Center, was escorted by a meeting in the FSB with a bag over his head.

A source familiar with the investigation told CNN that the official charges were routed around a 2010 incident in the Chronopay online payment company's investigation.

Chronopay's founder, Pavel Vrublewski, was sentenced in 2013 to hire hackers for a rival business infiltration that penetrated the airline's online payment system, Aeroflot, for several days.

   Paul Vrublewski was convicted in 2014 of hiring hackers to interrupt a rival business.
