The infamous hacking group ‘Anonymous’ may have just executed one of the most devastating blows to Russia since it invaded Ukraine. The Ukrainian Anonymous branch announced on Twitter that it had infiltrated a Russian federal agency and released 360,000 files.
The group’s official Twitter account, @YourAnonTV wrote Thursday:
JUST IN: #Anonymous has successfully breached and leaked the database of Roskomnadzor, the Russian federal executive agency responsible for monitoring, controlling and censoring #Russian mass media, releasing to the public over 360K files. #OpRussia https://t.co/m5wvoDGNPh

The documents released show that Russia is censoring the narrative “regarding its role in its war with Ukraine” writes the Jerusalem Post. Some of the released documents are from as recent as just days ago, on March 5.
Documents show Moscow censored anything that referred to the war as a Russian invasion of Ukraine. Additionally, Roskomnadzor blocked Russians from the ability to use Facebook after it flagged Russian articles as factually inaccurate.
Just days ago, Anonymous hacked “several Russian broadcasts” and interrupted the programming to have messages appear which said normal Russians don’t support the war. On February 24 Anonymous declared a cyberwar against Russia and have taken credit for hacking multiple Russian government websites.
Among their actions, the group opened a website for users to be able to send emails to random Russians through their email addresses which were stored in the database. Emails to the Russians encouraged them to “spread the truth about war in Ukraine.”
Many reports have emerged that Russian troops were unaware of the purpose for being sent into Ukraine. Videos have circulated the internet showing Russian soldiers apologizing, crying and surrendering to Ukraine.
