Vladimir Levin

Vladimir Levin is a character in Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina. He is the prosperous landowner who felt that democracy was the answer to the great divide that existed between the aristocracy and the peasants in Tsarist Russia.

Vladimir Levin is also the handle of a Russian, criminal hacker who broke into Citibank's network and stole about ten million dollars, the name most likely being chosen for its Robin Hood-like associations.
