Source The agency's cybersecurity officer turned out to be inappropriate for the position. In October, Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Nikolai Vinnichenko submitted a presentation to the Minister of Transport Vitaly Savelyev because of the actions of his subordinate, the head of the Federal Air Transport Agency, Alexander Neradko. This was reported by the Aviatorshchina Telegram channel and confirmed by a Vedomosti source close to the Prosecutor General's Office. Vedomosti sent a request to the Federal Air Transport Agency and the Ministry of Transport.
In July, Neradko appointed his former assistant, 27-year-old Tatyana Kocherova, to the position of head of the department for digital transformation and support of the Federal Air Transport Agency. In the submission of the Prosecutor General's Office to the minister, it was said that Neradko did not have the right to employ Kocherova – she does not meet the requirements for this position, the Telegram channel reported and confirmed the source of Vedomosti. Kocherova has a humanitarian education, and by profession she is a proofreader-clerk, according to the Telegram channel.
This personnel decision was made after a powerful hacker attack on the IT infrastructure of Rosaviatsiya was carried out on March 26. As a result, according to the Telegram channel, about 65 TB of data was destroyed: all document flow, files on servers, etc. were erased. Neradko himself, in an interview with Moskovsky Komsomolets, denied large-scale damage from a DDoS attack. The head of the Federal Air Transport Agency said that everything is “calm” and “works as planned.” “The paperwork is in order. Aviation performs its tasks. Flights are flying. The main thing is that this does not affect the work of the aviation industry in any way,” he noted.
According to Article 24 of the Law on the Prosecutor’s Office, within a month from the date of the submission of the submission of the supervisory agency, specific measures must be taken to eliminate the violations of the law , their causes and conditions contributing to them; the results of the measures taken must be reported to the prosecutor in writing.
