Before the physical attack on Ukraine on Thursday, February 24, 2022, the country was targeted by a massive cyberattack believed to have been carried out by Russia. Social media users applauded the group’s decision against Putin.
The group has in the past targeted some groups including KKK and Islamic extremists.
