MOSCOW, January 29 (Sputnik) – Ukrainian hacker group CyberBerkut leaked documents Wednesday that allegedly expose massive casualties and terrible morale among the Kiev troops attacking eastern Ukraine.
The cyber activists allegedly hacked a computer of the Ukrainian Judge Advocate General, leaking a number of classified documents. The documents reveal that, in reality, Kiev is struggling to keep things under control, desperately trying to cover up the real situation in Ukraine’s east, where government troops are involved in a so-called “anti-terrorist operation”.
Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) has officially forbidden the country’s Defense Ministry to reveal the real number of dead Ukrainian soldiers, RT says.
These horrible revelations come as Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday that the country has recruited another 45,000 draftees during the first nine days of mobilization. Ukraine plans to hold three waves of mobilization this year. The first wave started on January 20 and plans to draft 50,000 conscripts, while the second wave will start in April.
CyberBerkut has already done a few high-profile hacks that changed the course of conversation about Ukraine. Victoria Nuland's famous words "F**k the EU!" and her secret plot to assemble a post-coup government in Kiev became public after the hacktivists leaked the recording. The group also leaked information about sniper at the Maidan Square, shooting indiscriminately at both police and protesters during the last days of the Yanukovich government.
