Killnet released a video with a person wearing a hoody and said, “Greetings, Russians and friendly union nations.
“The internet is full of fake information about the hacking of Russian banks, hacks on Russian media servers, and much more.
“None of this poses any danger to people.
“This ‘information bomb’ is merely text and nothing more. Do not fall for fake information on the internet. Have no doubts about your country.”
The Killnet hackers said in the video that “very soon this conflict will end, and we will find peace.”
