This is not the first time that hackers have disrupted Russian television to show viewers the reality of war in Vladimir Putin’s country. Real photos of military actions do not reach Russia, and the citizens of this country are fed propaganda and information that the Russian army is liberating the population of a neighboring state that “is depopulating Ukraine”.
The broadcast of the Champions League volleyball match, in which the Berlin recycle hits were played against Italian Itas Trentino, was suspended. At one time, instead of the players on the dance floor, viewers of Russian television watched a brief report on the war in Ukraine.
It took some time for the TV crew to get back the broadcast of the match. They couldn’t do this for a long time and had to physically disconnect the cables to reset the transmission. Berlin’s Recycling beat Trentino Itas 3-2. In the quarter-finals, he was supposed to play against Zenit Petersburg, who was excluded from other matches due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
