Hacking group Anonymous has claimed to have released ‘personal data of 120,000 Russian soldiers fighting in Ukraine.’
Anonymous announced yesterday that its latest attack has ‘leaked’ the personal details of the military.
According to the Sun, these details include dates of birth, names, home addresses and passport numbers.
The collective said: ‘All soldiers participating in the invasion of Ukraine should be subjected to a war crime tribunal.’
It comes after Russia’s attack on Ukraine and its civilians was branded ‘genocide’ by President Volodymyr Zelensky.

A recorded message was sent to President Putin featuring videos and images of the invasion from news outlets in the background days after the war began, Unilad reported.
In the footage, a spokesperson said: ‘This is a message to Vladimir Putin, from Anonymous.
‘Mr Putin. The ongoing invasion of Ukraine has shown that your regime has no respect for human rights or the self determination of your neighbours.’
Anonymous called Putin the ‘instigator’ of violence, referring to the killing of innocent people.
They added: ‘Members of Anonymous have declared cyber war against your aggressive regime […] soon you will feel the full wrath of the world’s hackers.’
The statement comes after the group’s other attacks on Russian state-controlled media and government websites
The group also alleged on 31 March that it had hacked 62,000 emails from the Marathon Group.
It is a Russian investment firm owned by Alexander Vinokurov, currently under EU sanctions.
Anonymous said that details from the emails were put on ‘DDoSecrets’.
It is a non-profit whistleblower site for news leaks, formally named the Distributed Denial of Secrets.
Emma Best, co-founder of DDoSecrets, had tweeted that the site published a large amount of emails from the Russian law firm Capital Legal Services which practices law in a variety of areas.
She had made the post about the 200,000 emails while ‘awaiting confirmation of attribution to a specific member of Anonymous.’
Anonymous also retweeted one of Ms Best’s posts which said DDoSecrets published around 57,500 emails from the Russian Orthodox Church’s charitable wing.
But the hacking collective did not confirm whether it was responsible.
The group has said: ‘The hacking will continue until Russia stops their aggression.’
