Belarusian hackers launch an attack on Belarusian railways

A group of Belorussian hackers claimed to have attacked the Belarusian railways on 27 February, according to a Google translation of the message posted on their Telegram channel. The hackers, who call themselves ‘Cyber partisans’ aimed to ‘slow down the transfer of occupying forces and give the Ukrainians more time to repel the attack’. They claimed that their hack ‘paralysed’ certain railway operations in Minsk and in Orsha. 

The group wrote: ‘The internal network will be disconnected until the Russian troops leave the territory of Belarus and the participation of the Belarusian military forces in the fascist aggression ceases.’
