During the mass attack following the Crimean bridge bombing, the Russians attacked the air threat alert system – Air Defense Expert.

The founder of the “Air Alarm” community, lieutenant colonel of the National Guard Serhii Sudets, stated during a briefing at the Ukraine Odesa Media Center.

“When a mass terrorist attack on Ukraine’s civilian cities occurred after the Crimean bridge bombing, over two days, more than 20 thousand Russian accounts attacked our channel. It could’ve crashed, but thankfully, our hackers repelled the attack,” the specialist said.
