It was during this period Boyko and received from the inhabitants of Runet nickname `Pearl praporschik` - on the arm of his keen users saw pearl bracelet (later turned out to be a regular plastic rosary).

Obtaining data for identification of the ensign, alas, not enough. Some actively exaggerated theory that Pearl Ensign is in Internal Forces of Russia; later, however, officials of the Ministry of Interior denied this theory.

November 2 attacked by unknown Boyko lawyer Alexander Eroshenko; Eroshenko later officially refused to act as advocate unpopular among the broad masses of the accused.

In the process, it became clear that the incident at the Gostiny Dvor, maybe not the first `podvig` Vadim Boyko. According to the former deputy Sergei Gulyaev, another 2 February 2008 Boyko was involved in the dispersal of unauthorized rally in St. Petersburg - and, among other things, quite cruelly dealt with the one of the protesters.

26 December 2011 the first final judgment was handed down in the case of Pearl Ensign; Boyko was sentenced 3.5 year suspended sentence and probation for 2 years.

on May 11 2013, Vadim Boyko once again did not get along with the existing legislation; This time, however, his actions was seen not the slightest hint of an attempt at least to some extent to comply with the law. Previous Boyko evening spent in a certain cheburek St. Petersburg; the next morning the man discovered that somewhere lost hours. Boyko decided that the clock is left in cheburek - and decided to bring them back, his statement arguing with firearms. Back at the cafe with a shotgun, he began to implement his plan in life. There were, however, no casualties - just hit the ceiling places where the gun went off when Boyko fight with one of the employees. After the shot Vadim continued to demand his watch - already operating with only some words; for this exciting experience and it was caught by police.
