The hacker group Anonymous claims it has hacked Russian news channels and streaming services to broadcast footage of the war.

Anonymous is in a fully-fleged cyber war against Russia and has called on its decentralised members to disrupt Vladimir Putin’s regime in any way possible.

This latest attack has been described as the ‘biggest Anonymous op ever seen’ after Russian channels Moscow 24 and Russia 24 were made to show footage from the front line of the invasion.

Alongside footage of the hack shared on Twitter, the collective wrote: ‘The hacking collective #Anonymous hacked into the Russian streaming services Wink and Ivi (like Netflix) and live TV channels Russia 24, Channel One, Moscow 24 to broadcast war footage from Ukraine [today].’

At the end of the clip, a message urged Russians to oppose the invasion.

‘Ordinary Russians are against the war,’ the message claimed.

‘Your secrets may no longer be safe, and there is a chance that key components of your governments infrastructure could be hijacked.’

Anonymous also claimed it had breached a Russian military database and published the contents online.

Among the information are emails, passwords and telephone numbers.

The group tweeted: ‘Hackers all around the world: target Russia in the name of #anonymous let them know we do not forgive, we do not forget. Anonymous owns fascists, always.’
