Army disabled more than 750 Russian online resources, including those of
the Russian Foreign Ministry, various military agencies, and others.
It is noted that critical
online resources of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian
Federation were subjected to cyber attacks. “In order to protect the
sites, the head of the ministry, Sergei Lavrov, was forced to distract
himself from yet another lie he spread and temporarily hide the sites of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” the Ministry of Statistics notes.
In addition, the operations of more than a hundred online stores
selling drones, as well as military depot shops were paralyzed across
Russia. Because of this, the Russians had issues with ordering equipment
and gear for their soldiers fighting against Ukraine.
It is also noted that due to cyberattacks targeting Russia, telecom
services provided by Beeline and the operator’s online platforms failed
so its customers had no access to the Internet.
“The IT Army continues to curb propaganda in the Russian Federation
and does not stop its ‘preventive’ work with the Russian mass media. For
every Russian missile fired at Ukrainian cities and every Russian shot
fired at Ukrainians, the IT Army continues to block the ‘great empire’
with massive cyber strikes, every day. Evil will be punished on physical
and digital fields,” the Ministry of Digital Affairs emphasized.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, from June 27 to July 10, the IT Army attacked more than 800 Russian online resources.
