Russian TVs Hacked On Victory Day Spread Anti-War Message

Russian television programming was hacked on Victory Day with anti-war messages.

Messages like “The blood of thousands of Ukrainians and hundreds of their children is on your hands,” “TV and the authorities are lying” and “No to war” flashed across screens of those with smart TVs as Russian President Vladimir Putin was making Victory Day remarks, celebrating the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany.

The hack affected major Russian networks such as Russia-1, Channel One and NTV-Plus.

The identity of the hacker is unknown.
