US accuses sanctioned Russian cyber expert of fraud

Russian Artem Lifshits, who was previously included in the US sanctions list, is accused by the United States of conspiracy to commit fraud. This was reported on the website of the US Department of Justice.

According to the agency's statement, the Russian cyber expert is a participant in a fraudulent scheme in which the stolen personal data of American citizens is used to open illegal accounts in banks and on cryptocurrency exchanges.

Earlier, the United States imposed sanctions on three Russians due to interference in American elections and cyber attacks. In addition to Lifshits, the blacklist included Anton Andreev and Daria Aslanova, who are also allegedly connected with the Internet Research Agency, which carried out manipulations during the elections. The US Treasury notes that Russia is using the services of a number of people to “try to sow discord between political parties and cause internal divisions” in democracies.

The “Russian agent” deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Derkach also fell under the new restrictions. The US believes that the Ukrainian parliamentarian has been actively working for Russia for more than ten years and maintains close ties with the Russian special services.
