The air of the local "First Radio" was interrupted in the Tuapse region at about four o'clock in the afternoon. Instead, an address was broadcast by a representative of the Freedom of Russia legion, who spoke of plans to seize Crimea, promising to destroy "war criminals." This is reported by the Telegram channel "Caution, news".
The Telegram channel notes that the hacking of the air was not massive, we are talking about isolated cases.
According to Caution, News, residents of Kursk and Tyumen also faced hacking. They broadcast the same message.
This is not the first such case in recent times. On February 22, 2023, air alert announcements were made on the radio in several Russian regions. The Ministry of Emergency Situations said that the cause of the incident was a hacker attack on the servers of commercial radio stations. Announcements were broadcast on the radio in Kazan, Voronezh, Belgorod, Nizhny Novgorod, Ufa, Novouralsk, Sverdlovsk Oblast, and the Moscow region, as well as in Novosibirsk , Izhevsk , Penza, Tyumen, and Magnitogorsk. The government of the Belgorod region stated at the time that the broadcast was allegedly hacked from the Ukrainian side in order to “sow panic among peaceful Belgorod residents.”
