Among the materials that a group of Ukrainian hackers “Cyberhunt”, according to her own assertion, was the result of hacking the mailbox of the Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, had found a letter from Russian businessman Yevgeny Chichvarkin. In 2014, the owner sent to the e-mail policy the request to rate my review of the story of Natan Dubovitsky. In the press repeatedly appeared evidence that this writer’s pseudonym hides Surkov himself. The review was eventually published. Chichvarkin meanwhile, acknowledged the authenticity of his correspondence with Surkov, uncovered by hackers.
The businessman’s correspondence with assistant to the President, found among the posted by hackers materials officer investigative group Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) Kirill Mikhailov, said on his page on Facebook the Ukrainian blogger Fedor Keller. Chichvarkin, who in 2008 lived in Britain, the letter sends Surkov for the evaluation review on the story of Natan Dubovitsky “Uncle Vanya”.
Moreover, the businessman says Alexander Pavlov, who forwards the text of the mail email@example.com. Previously, the hackers said that hacked the box, which contained, according to them, official correspondence Surkov.

Chichvarkin letter was sent in February 2014. In March of the same year in the magazine “Russian pioneer”, in which Surkov was a regular columnist, published a review of a businessman in “Uncle Vanya”. And the text coincide with the content of the letter, which Chichvarkin sent to the assistant to the President.
The ex-owner of “Euroset” on the background of the scandal with tampering with the mail Surkov acknowledged the authenticity of the correspondence. “I was very ashamed of his correspondence with Vladislav Yuryevich Surkov, which revealed the Ukrainian hackers”, – wrote Chichvarkin on his page in Facebook. The businessman apologized for too short opinion on the story and the deficiency in him of wit: “Now I could have written better.”
Thus, Chichvarkin was accused of agreeing on the reviews of the book its alleged author. In 2009 a special Supplement to the magazine “Russian pioneer” was published the novel “Okolonolya” under the pseudonym Natan Dubovitsky. Chief editor of the journal Andrei Kolesnikov reported at the time that piece was written by one of the columnists of the newspaper.
The newspaper “Vedomosti” on 13 August 2009 reported, citing an anonymous source that the author of the novel can be marmots. The newspaper drew attention to the similarity of the pseudonym Natan Dubovitsky with the name of the spouse of the assistant to the President Natalia Dubovitskaya, whose personal data of Ukrainian hackers also posted in open access.
Surkov then disown authorship, and even wrote in the “Russian pioneer” unflattering review of the novel “Okolonolya”, calling it “the biggest literary hoax, a Scarecrow and a fiction.” However, soon politician, by contrast, praised the novel. To convince the public that it has nothing to do with the work of Kremlin ideologue finally failed.
In 2011, the Director Kirill Serebrennikov has put in a Chekhov Moscow art theater, the play based on the novel “Okolonolya”. Surkov, accompanied by his wife came to see the production.
The Kremlin stubbornly deny the authenticity of the materials released by “Cybermonday”. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov in his first comments about the hacker publication said that Surkov “all the time something is attributed to something if our hackers, whether foreign” because he is “very talented person”. The head of the Kremlin press service noted that “most often it is not true”.
A day later, Peskov reported that Surkov is generally not personal e-mail. A Kremlin spokesman added that the administration of the President of the Russian Federation got acquainted with the published “Cyberhunts” materials, and reiterated the feykovy form of correspondence: “somebody sweated considerably Verstov this document.
It’s very funny (hacked mail – mail reception Surkov, and not a personal box, so that the Sands as if in fact only confirmed) https://t.co/GfxQnrJeSe
