Makes sense
It looks like Russian hackers made great progress on hacking if they come to the top of the lists.

Re: is it Russia, really?
" if someone became insane Mr. Putin is to blame".

"if the weather is not right - this is Putin's fault, all right"

"if hangover getting worse, this is Putin's fault of course"

What does Putin have to do with the petty and common onlne crimes? Which existed  for decades? I believe much less than the American President had to do with personaly supervising tortures in Abu Graib or Gunatanamo. Cheap & affordable computers as well as improving internet speed is the real factor. What else is very likely is thet US administration became concerned that one day the Russians will become as skilled as the American internet thugs, decided that what they imagine has already hapened & no is time to act.

Re: is it Russia, really?
    Of course the Americans are involved in this kind of thing. That doen't invaildate this story. The more likely line is that Putin has decide that HIS control of the Russian part of the internet has given him a weapon that he can use offensively.

is it Russia, really?
.. or, as this publication, most likely is,  simply a part of the official CIA anti-Russian campaigh and/or another anti-Russian covert operation by the freedom loving Americans? All of them design to brain-wash the remaining sane Americans (if there are any left after all these years) and prepare them for a war (with Russia). Even a primary school kid nowdays knows how easiy it is to spoof IP address. Especially when most of the traffic goes via CIA-controlled , American servers. As "viscious and bloodthirsty" as the Russians are, their acess to WWW in the final run, is controlled by the American servers and for the most part is done via American operational systems (bugged with numeraous NSA installed gates and backdoors - read Snowden's documents).
