The collective of hacker activists Anonymous continue to cyber war against the Kremlinmanaging to convey messages and information about the Russian TV. And in addition to demonstration actions for fight propaganda of Moscow, which hides the horror of the conflict from its citizens, there are many other attacks to major sites and servers in Russia.
Anonymous hits Russian TV, breaking the Kremlin’s propaganda wall
Anonymous’s hacker campaign against the Kremlin knows no pauses and this weekend has continued to strike. Volunteer hacks have done quite well striking in what is becoming a veritable computer warfare.
As already done in the previous insights on Anonymous and the so-called Operation Russiawe specify the operations are carried out by hackers, as the name of the collective says, anonymous. Therefore it is difficult to attribute the attacks and verify them independently, also due to the Russian reluctance to disclose the attacks suffered.
Anonymous on Russian TV, to overcome Kremlin censorship
The most significant blow done over the weekend by Anonymous concerns the mass communication. After the Kremlin has blocked social networks, Russian TV and state newspapers are one of the few ways Russian citizens can learn about the conflict. This makes it simple for Moscow underestimate your losses and peddle the invasion as a successful and peaceful operation.
Anonymous yesterday (Sunday, March 6) reported having had access to Russian streaming services Wink e Ibid, which these days will be even more used after Netflix has blocked its services in Russia. Furthermore, it would also broadcast on public channels such as Russia 24, Channel One, Moscow 24 of the video clips showing the invasion of Ukraine. By bypassing the Kremlin propaganda and showing the enormous human cost the conflict is having.

But besides TV there are other initiatives that Anonymous is carrying out so that the Russian population can learn about the drama of the conflict in Ukraine. For example, he opened an SMS service to communicate information to the Russian population. In addition to Anonymous, other online groups are taking action, for example by launching a channel to track down family and friends sent to fight in Ukraine.
The hope is that these operations will give information to the Russian population, which in recent days has continued to protest, with now over ten thousand arrests of pacifists by the Moscow regime.
The other attacks of the last few days
In addition to these operations to communicate with the Russian population, Anonymous has reported several attacks on Russian sites. Some demonstration, others with potentially strategic effects. The first case includes the operations of activists who have ‘drawn’ of troll faces in software for Russian military radios. But having “broken through” the software also has the effect of making the Russian army doubt the security of its communications.
Anonymous also reports that it “went into the air in Russia”. In fact he would have hit the system of ventilation Of orangescadaa Russian IT company.
The previous results of Anonymous’s cyber war
In addition to attacking Russian TV, Anonymous and other hacker activists have continued to target Russia since the invasion began. However, specifying that: “No. Anonymous is not at war with Russia.
