The occupiers plan to use the equipment to limit access of residents in temporarily occupied territory to Ukrainian media websites.

Colonel of the Russian Armed Forces Sergey Fedchenko, who "heads the department for information isolation in the combat area," is in charge of cyberattacks on Ukraine's informational space, the Ukrainian intelligence service said.
