The stolen database included details of prisoners, including those in the Arctic colony where Navalny died. The publication of these data caused a wide resonance, because it included not only information about the prisoners, but also about their families and contacts. The hackers, who included Russian émigrés and Ukrainians, said their goal was to draw attention to the situation with Navalny and spark a discussion about security and human rights in Russia.

However, the hackers first published a photo of Navalny on the website of the hacked prison’s contractor, they told CNN exclusively.

Alexei Navalny, who fought against corruption and opposed the actions of the Kremlin, died in a Russian prison while serving his sentence. His death sparked international outrage and accusations of a politically motivated assassination.

This incident with the theft of the database of Russian prisoners opens a new page in the history of hacktivism, demonstrating its potential as a means of political influence and discussion of important social issues. However, it also highlights the importance of data protection and privacy in the digital age.
