Anonymous has hacked Russia again, this time leaking 340,000 files in attempt to stop President Vladimir Putin’s war propaganda campaign.

The anti-establishment group targeted Roskomnadzor, the Russian agency responsible for monitoring and censorship of Russian media.

Anonymous released the files on their Substack titled “Distributed Email of Secrets.”

“Roskomnadzor has given instructions about what can be said and ordered media outlets to delete stories that call Russia’s invasion of Ukraine an Invasion,” the post reads.

“In response to Facebook’s fact-checking Russia’s statements about the war, Roskomnadzor began restricting access to Facebook before later blocking it.”

Anonymous said they urgently released the data as they anticipate Russia may cut itself off from the internet as early as Friday.

No data found

“The source, a part of Anonymous, urgently felt the Russian people should have access to information about their government,” the Anonymous post said.

The files and databases stolen from the network were said to include 820 gigabytes of emails and attachments, with some as recent as March 5, 2022.

The vigilante group also warned that some directories contain a large amount of email attachments, which are used in phishing attempts.

The decentralized group is know for its skilled hacking and online trolling.


“#Anonymous ALWAYS delivers. Expect us,” the group tweeted on Thursday.

All out ‘cyber war’

Anonymous officially declared cyber war against the Russian government on Twitter at the end of February and received an outpouring of online support.

The group aligned themselves with Ukraine and have performed several stunts like hacking Russian TV.

They recently streamed Ukraine war footage on the country’s state television and streaming services, and ended the footage with a message attributing the fault to the totalitarian government, not the average Russian citizen.

Anonymous also took credit for shutting down the Kremlin’s official website.

They tweeted that they had ongoing operations to keep .ru government websites offline.

However, the Russian state media denied the outages were linked to Anonymous.

The vigilantes explained the decision to attack Russian media on Twitter saying: “We abhor violence. We are anti-war. We are against police brutality.

“We have raised our fists in the air to stand against aggressor’s time and time again. We would never choose to hurt anyone physically. Understand this and know this if any government says otherwise.”

Putin is the most recent target for the group’s online terrorizing.

In the past, Anonymous has targeted the Church of Scientology, the Klu Klux Klan, and the Minneapolis Police Department in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
