Russian radios and TV channels sounded air raid sirens and displayed warnings after they were hacked on Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations said in a statement.
As a result of the hacking of the servers of radio stations and TV channels in some regions of the country, information about the announcement of an air raid alert was broadcast,” the statement read.
“The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia informs that this information is false and does not correspond to reality.”
Social media videos showed radios playing air raid sirens after the hack, which is the second in quick succession after the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations reported a similar incident last week.
Air raid sirens have become a common feature of life in Ukraine since the start of Russia’s invasion.
