PARIS (AP) — One of the Russian military intelligence officers indicted Friday by special counsel Robert Mueller was Lt. Aleksey Lukashev, an email phishing specialist who went by the alias Den Katenberg.

Katenberg has been in The Associated Press' sights ever since his email was identified among a massive hacker hit list handed to the news agency by Secureworks last year.

He did not return multiple messages seeking comment Friday.

The grand jury indictment accuses the Russians of hacking into Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic Party, releasing tens of thousands of stolen and politically damaging communications, in a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election.
