On Saturday, certain Russian official websites remained unavailable, as the country's invasion of Ukraine entered its third day. The Kremlin and the Ministry of Defense, for example, have dark websites. Hackers take down Russia's government websites, putting President Putin in a new crisis.
The specific cause of the outages is unknown, but the international hacking organization Anonymous has claimed responsibility for the attacks. In a tweet, Anonymous claimed, "Anonymous has continual operations to keep our government websites offline, and to push information to the Russian people so they can be free of Putin's official censorship machine."
The same Russian websites went down for a spell on Friday, although state media reported that the Kremlin denied it was being attacked by Anonymous. It's the third day in a row that Russian websites have been unavailable, at least temporarily. Anonymous further stated that it is attempting "to keep the Ukrainian people online as much as possible."
