In order to spread images of the invasion of Ukraine, the Anonymous group claimed to have hacked Russian state television. The sabotaged stations would have been Russia 24, Channel One and Moscow 24, in addition to the streaming services Wink and Ivi, according to the computer group.
According to the same version, the attacks against the Kremlin’s propaganda correspond to the “largest Anonymous operation ever seen.” “Ordinary Russians are against the war” was one of the messages that was broadcast on Sunday, March 6, among other content.
The Daily Mail indicated that information services sympathetic to President Vladimir Putin have reported that the deployment of troops in Ukraine responds to a “special military operation.” In other words, it is “a peacekeeping exercise” to prevent civil war led by nationalists encouraged by the Western powers that make up NATO.
As part of the offensive against the occupation launched by Moscow on February 24, 2022, Anonymous also claimed to have crashed Russian spy satellites. The information was strongly denied by the director of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), Dmitry Rogozin, who called digital activists “small-time fraudsters and swindlers.”
