Today, on May 9, Russians commemorate the surrender of Nazi Germany at the end of the Second World War. In a highly anticipated speech, Putin drew comparisons between the war in Ukraine today and Russian efforts in the 1940s.

But just hours before, hackers broke into the online Russian TV scheduling page and insisted the country has “blood on its hands”.

Francis Scarr of the BBC posted a video displaying the result of the hack on Twitter.

He highlighted that the name of every programme on the scheduling list was changed to a strongly-worded, anti-war message.

This, translated to English, read: “On your hands is the blood of thousands of Ukrainians and their hundreds of murdered children.

“No to war.”

The message appears to have been intended to weaken the force of the Kremlin’s rallying around the war in today’s military parade.

Drawing a parallel between the ongoing “special military operation” and the Second World War, Putin, translated by Max Seddon of the Financial Times, said: “Defending Russia is always sacred… you are fighting for our people in the Donbas, for the security of our motherland.”
