The websites of major Russian airports have been hacked, with calls to evade mobilization shown instead, Telegram channel DC8044 F33d reported out on Sept. 21.

Unknown persons hacked the sites of a number of major Russian airports and posted anti-war banners calling on Russians to evade mobilization, according to a post on the channel.

On the homepages of the airports, hackers published a banner with the slogans "Crazy old man is going all-in, his bet is our lives!"

"Ukrainians took away in three hours what took us three months. Now (the Kremlin is) mobilizing ‘fresh meat’ to bomb peaceful objects," the text on the banner reads.

The creators of the banner also said that the Second World War was won thanks to the U.S. Lend-Lease – and in this war the U.S. Lend-Lease is going to Ukraine.

"Ukraine has already won, the question is how much we’re going to lose," the text of the banner reads.

The message urged Russian citizens not to go out in order not to receive a conscription notice. If called up to the army, Russians are urged to surrender with their equipment.

As of 3:30 p.m. Kyiv time, the websites of some of these airports had resumed their work, while others were displaying an error.
