Anonymous leaked personal details of the Russian military stationed in Bucha where the Russian military carried out a massacre of civilians that are accused of having raped and shot local women and children. Leaked data include names, ranks and passport details of Russians serving in the 64 Motor Rifle Brigade which occupied Bucha prior to March 31.
The collective continues to target Russian media that are supporting Putin’s propaganda built on lies related to the invasion.
The Anonymous-linked group ‘NB65’ (@xxNB65), one of the most active in the last month, announced another success. The hacktivist hacked All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) and leaked sensitive documents along with 900K emails from VGTRK.
Below the description of the leak published on the DDoSecrets leak site:
“Over 20 years, 900,000 emails and 4,000 files from VGTRK / ВГТРК (All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company / Всероссийская государственная телевизионная и радиовещательная компания), a Russian state-owned broadcaster which operates five national TV stations, two international networks, five radio stations, and over 80 regional TV and radio networks. The Russian government has declared VGTRK essential for the “security of the state.”“ reads the description of the leak.
“VGTRK also runs the information agency Rossiya Segodnya / Росси́я сего́дня, which operates Sputnik, RIA Novosti and other entities. According to former VGTRK employees, Kremlin officials have dictated how the news should be covered, and provided incendiary phrases meant to discredit Ukraine. According to the former employees, while the editors normally have freedom to make decisions, “where big politics are concerned, war and peace, he has no freedom. According to a former VGTRK cameraman, VGTRK employees took editorial directions from the Kremlin, blacklisted experts that didn’t hold the party-line, and joked about whose “turn to lie” it was.”
