KIEV, August 24 (Itar-Tass) - Hackers from the CyberBerkut hacker group have blocked the phones of Ukrainian lawmakers and over 500 pro-government media resources in protest against a ‘fratricidal’ war unleashed in the country, the organization said on its website on Sunday.
The hacker activists posted a statement, in which they accused the Ukrainian government of “unleashing a fratricidal war in its own country.”
“A heating season without energy resources is approaching. Brussels is already not talking about Ukraine’s accession to the EU. Indeed, who needs a country, in which a civil war is raging and torch-light marches of fascists are held?” the statement said.
The CyberBerkut hackers also explained their position by incessant artillery shelling of east Ukrainian towns and the demand to hold a criminal investigation of the Ukrainian military’s actions in the Donetsk Region.
