Online records seem to suggest that the bogus unregistered AS47860 is and always was just a property of the one and only entity that is providing it with route distribution, i.e. AS43659, D2 International Investment Ukraine, Ltd. http://1whois.ru/world/UA/%D0%9A%D0%B8%D0%B5%D0%B2/LLC%20%22Albino%22 (Note the abuse email address.) Note that AS43659, D2 International Investment Ukraine, Ltd. is itself an authorized RIPE NCC LIR: https://www.ripe.net/membership/indices/data/ua.d2investukraine.html I have already written to that organization via the following two email addresses and I have received no reply: support at etthua.net, d2invest at meta.ua Could someone who actually speaks Ukranian please email these crooks and ask them nicely to stop passing routes for unregistered IPv4 space? Regards, rfg P.S. Looking over this document: https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-640 It appears to me to be the case that it is possible to become a full fledged dues-paying RIPE NCC LIR member while having never made any sort of pledge whatsoever to refrain from announcing routes to IP space for which the member has no clear rights, either directly, from the relevant RIR, or indirectly from that actual registrant. Is that correct? Forgive me. Even after all this time, I'm still trying to wrap my head around this charade, this farce. RIPE NCC makes, creates, and provides allocations, but then never formally asks any of its members to respect or obey any of those. Is that about the size of it?
