Polish Hackers Help Russian Citizens Learn The Truth About The War In Ukraine

President Vladimir Putin of Russia has censored all media in Russia so that Russian citizens don’t know what is happening in the war between Russia and Ukraine. Despite this, media is getting to Russia differently. Enter Squad303, a Polish-based hacking group with the same name as a squadron that fought in WWII against Nazi Germany. These hackers created 1920.in, a website that generates emails and phone numbers of Russian citizens. People can contact these numbers to send them media that would otherwise be censored. By March 16th, people had already sent over 30 million messages to randomly generated numbers. Below are translated copies of the messages that are sent to the Russian citizens.


Editor at The City Voice

Hello, my name is Luke Fann. I love to read and write myself into a fantastical realm, but I love all genres. Of course, such a task requires assistance from my parents and older brother. I've feasted on alligators and tamed beasts like alpacas (my favorite animal), but none of that compares to my greatest weapon: a pencil. I am an editor here for the City Voice, and this is my second year writing for it.
