Critics say Anonymous’s attacks on Russia do not cause significant damage to the country’s state infrastructure or military capabilities. However, the hacker, a member of the group Anonymous, who hides under the pseudonym Spid3r, believes otherwise. In an interview with ibtimes.com, he spoke about the fruits of the activities of hacktivists who support Ukraine in the fight against Russia.

Stay up to date with the Fast Focus telegram channel.

“Hacks and sanctions against Russia have weakened Russia’s cyber system and its financial capabilities, for which various methods have been used. Russia loses power every time an attack is carried out,” the hacker said.

When asked how many hacktivists work under the auspices of Anonymous, Spid3r said he did not know for sure. “No one knows the exact number of participants. Anyone can sign as” anonymous “after a break. The number of participants may increase or decrease due to various events. Not all” anonymous “communicate with each other, not all coordinate with each other , so the group does not have a leader or something like a “decision-making center,” he said.

Journalists wondered how hackers determine the targets of attacks if the group structure is decentralized? According to Spid3r, Anonymous members simply agree with each other, choosing certain goals.

“It is probably the amorphousness and anonymity of the group that has put Russian cyber defense at a dead end,” the media reported.

And to those who see Anonymous’s actions as a violation of the law, Spid3r said: “Laws are nonsense … Governments are the biggest criminals, and they hide their crimes.”

The spokesman stressed that Anonymous exposes such crimes even in ways and means that are prohibited by law. And while the public considers their actions “illegal,” Spid3r believes the hacktivists are “not restricted by any laws.”

Critics say the group, led by such a philosophy, will consider itself superior to all laws and will stop at nothing. But the interlocutor assured that the Anonymous movement does not “target innocent people and does not steal anything.”

“Anonymous’s only goal is to counter injustice,” he said.

As proof of his words, he gave the following example: at the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine, some people asked Anon to create a ransomware program to force Russian companies to pay to restore access to their stolen data. It was proposed to transfer the collected sums to help Ukraine. They also offered to hack Russian bitcoin wallets. But the team of hackers abandoned all these ideas.
