Anonymous and #OpRussia

Anonymous is an online collective of “hacktivists” who, anonymously and organized, carry out joint actions motivated by a common cause or ideal.

In February 2022, with the confirmation of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the collective started to use the hashtag #OpRussia, for Operation Russia, calling on other “hackers” to focus their efforts and attack Russian institutions, bringing harm to the country and sharing relevant information, making the Russian population aware of the reality of what is happening in Ukraine.
