The previous action of comparable scale was dated February 26. Then Anonymous hackers blocked the work of the vast majority of critical sites of the Russian Federation, including the sites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Kremlin, the Ministry of Defense, the government of Chechnya, Roskomnadzor and leading propaganda mouthpieces.
