Recall that the leader of the hacker group “Humpty Dumpty” Anikeev previously stated that they had no contact with the FSB. According to Anikeev, his companion Teplyakov carried out random missions, and he (Anikeev) went to St. Petersburg only for personal reasons.
However, Konstantin Teplyakov gave the first TV interview after his release, in which he said that the group really worked under the guidance of the FSB.
According to Teplyakov, only Anikeev was in touch with the FSB officers.
“He regularly went to Moscow or St. Petersburg for consultation, while the rest of the group was abroad.”
Anikeev never told his companions information with whom he met in Russia. According to Teplyakov, he took the risks associated with communication with the Authorities and Special Services.
Teplyakov believes that the officers of the Center for Information Security of the FSB could cooperate with Anikeev. Since they were arrested on charges of treason at the end of 2016, at the same time as members of the group ” Humpty Dumpty».
Teplyakov also said that a case was opened against the hacker group “Humpty Dumpty” because of the internal conflict in the FSB. “Some departments did not pay attention to our activities, while others were following us. It’s just inconsistency.”
It is worth noting that both members of the hacker group are already at large. Anikeev was detained in October 2016 and fully pleaded guilty, and in December was detained Teplyakov. Anikeev received two years in prison and was released in August last year. Teplyakov was sentenced to three years in prison and was released last December.
