* Konstantin Goloskokov, a commissar in the pro-Kremlin Russian youth movement Nashi (Ours), has said that he and a few friends staged one of the cyber attacks carried out against Estonia over the past month, the Russian newspaper Vedemosti reported on May 9.
The paper said that he was so far the only person to admit being part of the attacks. Goloskokov said he didn’t know who else had staged cyber attacks on Estonia. He also said he didn’t coordinate his actions with Nashi’s leaders.
One of the best-known hackers in Russia told the newspaper that the most efficient online attacks on Estonia could not have been carried out without the help of the Russian state.
