The collective remarked that it wants peace and wants only to hit Putin and not Russian citizens, it wants to stop the military invasion of Ukraine. The group is also aware that its operations could create conditions that could be abused by third-party attackers.

We are #Anonymous
We are involved in the biggest Anonymous op ever seen. That being said, we are worried that some governments will indeed see us as a threat and create some scenario to make us look bad (false flag). We only want peace, not war. (continued)

Russia is preparing to disconnect from the global internet, limiting access to information for the Russian people. That means censorship, and we are totally against censorship of any kind. So… let’s turn up the pressure! pic.twitter.com/4EhuTX9jRB
