The Anonymous collective has declared this Saturday the ‘cyberwar’ on the president of RussiaVladimir Putin, in the face of the invasion of Ukraine, and has warned him that his government web infrastructure will face “unprecedented” attacks.
In a video broadcast on YouTube, in which Anonymous has censored the Russia’s “aggressive regime”a representative of the collective has indicated that, during the last days, many Russian government sites have suffered cyberattacks and has warned Putin that “this is only the beginning.”
“Your secrets won’t be safe anymore”he added, before highlighting the possibility that “key components of the Russian government infrastructure” could be hacked.
The representative of Anonymous has indicated that the invasion of Ukraine has shown that the “Russian regime” has no “respect” for Human Rights or for the self-determination of its neighboring countries, while at the same time lamenting the damage to civil infrastructure and the civilians who have been “assassinated”.
In this sense, Anonymous has predicted that the military offensive in Ukraine “will create more problems” to Russia “on its geopolitical front” because “more countries will see him as a threat and an enemyplus its neighboring countries that have maintained a neutral attitude until now”.
In addition, he has mentioned the protests that have been taking place since Thursday in various parts of the Eurasian country in rejection of the invasion of Ukraine and has warned that the “tyrannical response” to the demonstrations “will only spread more discontent” of the Russians, to those who sanctions “will hurt more”.
