Hacked e-mails suggest dirty tricks by Russian youth group

The e-mails seem to confirm that youth group Nashi uses cash from the Kremlin to buy praise for Putin and to attack and denigrate his perceived enemies

Asked by the Guardian about the hack, Borovikov said: “I’m not ready to discuss any provocations. It’s not correct to discuss this in principle. Unfortunately, it has become part of life to get into personal things, but it is not very nice to discuss it. It’s amoral. To think Nashi, as a social youth organization, has a lot of money is a delusion. The main resource of any social organization is its people.”

Yakemenko’s office directed all queries to Potupchik, who did not answer subsequent requests for comment.
