Russian hackers break smartphones of NATO military in the Baltic states and Poland



Russian hackers carry out attacks on the personal smartphones of NATO soldiers in Eastern Europe.

Censor.NET reports citing the The Wall Street Journal.

The victims of the attacks were a contingent of 4,000 NATO troops deployed this year in Poland and the Baltic States.

In particular, the smartphone of Lieutenant Colonel of the US Army Christendom Leura, who replaced the post of Commander of the NATO Base in Poland in July, was broken. According to him, the hacker tried to break the second level of password protection of his personal iPhone from the Russian IP address.

Colonel Leura said that at least six soldiers under his command had broken phone or accounts in the Facebook social network.

Western officials believe that phones hacked by hackers in a crisis situation can be used to slow NATO's response to Russia's hostilities. For example, if a commander's personal phone sends an erroneous order.

Russia refuses to return two officers of the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service

on Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:51 pm
Russia refuses to return two officers of the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service

The Russian Federation refuses to return two officers of the Ukrainian State Border Guard, abducted on October 3 at the border in the Sumy region.

This is on the page in Facebook writes editor-in-chief Tsensor.NET Yuriy Butusov.

" Two officers of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine were abducted on the border with the Russian Federation in the Sumy region on October 3. The head of the department, the major, as well as his deputy, captain, who were responsible for controlling the border area, had not been set up at the moment, were lured to the meeting, and then taken to Russia .The border in that place is not marked on the ground, there is no ditch, no fence, and the abduction has been unimpeded. The Sumy region is located outside the ATO zone, and there have been no hostilities there since. This is an unprecedented case since 2014, Ola Russia openly attacking the guards.

According to Cenzor.NET sources, Russia is currently refusing to negotiate their return, calling officers "border offenders". Representatives of the border service were not able to meet with Russian border guards, the country-aggressor on the contact does not go.

Obviously, the stolen uses a powerful psychological pressure, pressure. But Ukrainian officials were still not allowed to do so , nothing is known about their condition.

Obviously, this is the response of Russian intelligence agencies to the detention of two FSB officers in the Kherson region who entered Ukraine in the night of June 30 and were detained by soldiers of the 56th Motorized Infantry Brigade.

Special services of the Russian Federation are likely to blackmail Ukraine to secure the extradition of FSB officers. The capture of Ukrainian officers is terrorism, which the state must respond to. There can be no compromise here.

Russia expands the scope of provocations. Probably new attempts to seize Ukrainian servicemen and law enforcement officers may be made.

The situation requires an adequate response from the Ukrainian intelligence services. There are many places on the 1300-kilometer Russian-Ukrainian border where you can catch Russian border guards who are lost.

Russia is recognized as an aggressor country - and it is necessary to behave on the whole frontier with the RF, as on the border with the aggressor. Fence, visa regime, maximum contact rupture. Putin regards the absence of a force reaction as a weakness, and because of this, the RF continues provocations.

And, of course, the broadest public resonance is needed.

Of course, the circumstances of the event must be set. At the very least, negligence on the part of the border guards themselves is obvious, there are different versions, and careful investigation of all circumstances is required. The question of how the officers allowed themselves to be so upset can not fail. If they were defectors, then they would have shown themselves for a long time. But we can investigate something only after people return, we will investigate ourselves on our own."
