“Payback? Russia Gets Hacked, Revealing Putin Aide’s Secrets” NBC News
Robert Windrem reports that a Ukrainian group called Cyber Hunta has released over a gigabyte of emails from the office of a top aide to Putin, Vladislav Surkov. The emails show how Russian controlled the separatist movement in Ukraine as well as Georgia and other breakaway republics. The emails are a confirmation of what U.S. officials already believed and Surkov has been under sanctions from the U.S. and E.U. since 2014.
