In the latest of a string of attacks on Russian media outlets, hackers targeted Russian radio station Kommersant FM, broadcasting the Ukrainian national anthem and anti-war songs to protest Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
The hackers’ anti-war offering included Russian rock band Nogu Svelo!’s song "We Don't Need a War," which repeatedly features a quote from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that roughly translates to “a tough guy always keeps his word.” The station was quickly pulled off the air. “The radio station has been hacked. The internet stream will soon be reinstated,” the station confirmed in a statement. (The Moscow Times)
