Anonymous launches cyber war on Russia and has disabled several websites [View all]

Hacking group Anonymous has declared ‘cyber war’ against Vladimir Putin’s government in response to his invasion of Ukraine.

The collective then said it had disabled several websites of Russian government, the Kremlin, the Duma, and the Ministry of Defence.

It also claimed to have taken down the website of Kremlin-backed TV channel Russia today, which broadcasts in Britain.

Earlier this week the news network was described by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer as Putin’s ‘personal propaganda tool’.

When Metro.co.uk attempted to access the site this morning, it said it was inaccessible and displayed an error message saying ‘this site can’t be reached’.

Gotta love 'em!
