The Anonymous hacker collective has hacked into Roskomnadzor, the Russian federal agency responsible for monitoring and censoring media, the group announced on Twitter on Thursday, adding that it has released 364,000 files from the agency’s database.

Among the censored documents released by Anonymous, some of which are dated as late as March 5, are ones that show Moscow censored anything that referred to the war as a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Roskomnadzor is blocking Russian use of Facebook and is threatening to block Russian Wikipedia for including an article on the Russian invasion.

Anonymous launched a cyberwar against Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine and has hacked multiple Russian government websites, including Kremlin propaganda channels TR News and Sputnik.
