Crimean Council of Ministers Fires Employees for Mining Bitcoin Using Government Computers

Two officials of the Crimean Council of Ministers were terminated after they were caught mining Bitcoin using government computers as of early October 2017.

At a press conference in Sevastopol, Alexander Akshatin, chairperson of the Anti-Corruption Committee of the Republic of Crimea, has announced that the council’s head of information technology (IT) department, and the department’s head of hardware and technical support were already dismissed.
