The digital war is also at the center of Ukraine’s concerns

Although Russian soldiers are currently wreaking havoc in Ukraine’s defense lines, the country is also facing numerous attacks on the Internet. Yesterday, for example, Ukraine was the victim of a massive cyberattack which allowed Russia to delete all data from several hundred machines thanks to malware.

The support of Anonymous therefore comes at the right time for the country which is resisting the invader as best it can. Earlier today, an Anonymous account claimed the Kremlin, Russian government and Russian Ministry of Defense websites taken offlinewhile another user announced that he took the website of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service of Russia offline for a short time.
