Anonymous has now hit the headlines in Russia. According to some media outlets in Russia, the forum has crashed the Russian government website for promoting censorship activities among other nations. They used DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) to increase traffic and jam the website. They also took over the domain, which was later removed.

The website dealt with international cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) was hacked for the State's activity on strict censorship against usage of social media tools and internet. This comes after the Russians banned encrypted messaging app Telegram and thousands of IP (Internet protocol) addresses.

"Greetings, Roskomnadzor. Your recent destructive actions against Runet led us to the idea that you are just a handful of incompetent brainless worms. You no longer have to be able to continue this pointless vandalism. Consider this as our last warning. Yours, Anonymous," read the message on the hacked website.

The crime seems to has threatened Russian agency somehow. But the order made by hackers to remove the censorship, is in vain.
