Website of Russian oil giant allegedly hacked

Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of Russian state gas company Gazprom, has allegedly suffered a hack on Wednesday bringing down its website.

A statement allegedly from Gazprom CEO Alexie Miller was displayed on the website, appearing to criticise Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Miller is a close friend of President Vladimir Putin.

The website went down soon afterward.

“The information published on the site on the morning of April 6 … is not true and cannot be regarded as an official statement of the company’s representatives or shareholders,” Gazprom Neft said.

Gazprom Neft, Russia’s third-largest oil producer, is a subsidiary of Gazprom. Gazprom is perhaps best known for sponsoring UEFA.
