Some television networks were this Monday the target of computer attacks in Russia, during the military parade of the 77th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, according to the local press.
According to Russian news agency Interfax, unidentified people accessed programming from cable television networks Rostelecom, MTS and NTV-Plus.
In place of the titles of the channels’ programs, texts related to the war in Ukraine appeared.
The pirates also attacked Yandex TV, according to information passed by several people, who posted photos on the social network Telegram confirming that the channel was the victim of hackers.
Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 and the military offensive has already killed more than 3,000 civilians, according to the UN, which warns that the real number is likely to be much higher.
The military offensive caused the flight of more than 13 million people, of which more than 5.5 million were out of the country, according to the latest UN data.
The Russian invasion was condemned by the international community in general, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and reinforcing economic and political sanctions on Moscow.
