Faced with this series of attacks that Ukraine has been suffering from the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin,
we could not help but support the Ukrainian people.

“Anonymous, a group of hacktivists, successfully hacked and leaked the database of the website of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.” reported the Pravda agency.

The website of the Kremlin (Kremlin.ru) is also unreachable, but it is unclear if it is the result of the Anonymous attack or if the government has taken offline it to prevent disruptive attacks.

The Russian Government’s portal, and the websites of other ministries are running very slow.

The collective is also threatening the Russian Federation and private organizations of attacks, it is a retaliation against Putin’s tyranny.

Anonymous pointed out that it is not targeting Russian citizens, but only their government.

“We want the Russian people to understand that we know it’s hard for them to speak out against their dictator for fear of reprisals.”

Anonymous is also launching its offensive against those countries that are supporting military operations in Ukraine, like Belarus. The collective is also leaking around 200GB of emails from Belarusian weapons maker Tetraedr. This company provided logistical support to Vladimir Putin in his invasion of Ukraine.
