Ukrainian Hackers Infiltrate Russian Defense Ministry
The group alleges obtaining internal documentation and software used by Russian military personnel, specifically mentioning Igor Konashenkov, the spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Defense. Konashenkov, recently promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General, has been a key figure in providing updates on Russia’s military operations in Ukraine. The hackers state they monitored Konashenkov’s reports on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
The alleged destruction of thousands of Ukrainian armored vehicles and military equipment by Russian forces has been reported but remains unverified. The hacking group reveals that employees assess both Western and Russian media daily, categorizing them as “positive,” “negative,” or “neutral,” sending reports to Igor Konashenkov. Efforts have been made to counter unreliable military bloggers on Telegram, criticizing the war. The hackers couldn’t access the Telegram channel list.
