IT army attacked more than 4,200 Russian sites in the four months of the full-scale war
As the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine reported, from February 26, 2022, to June 26, 2022, the IT army, which brings together hackers from around the world, attacked more than 4,200 Russian online resources.
On the third day of the full-scale Russian invasion, more than 250,000 volunteer hackers joined the IT army to stage daily mass attacks on Russian online resources.
Regular DDoS attacks stopped the sites of Russian government agencies. Russians could not get government services, conduct financial transactions in online banking, applicants could not apply online to universities, and lawsuits in the regions were suspended.
The IT army hit an economic forum of Russians, the sites of national and regional media, online television, and Rutube. Cyber activists harmed Putinʼs speeches and disrupted the media to prevent them from spreading propaganda.
