Hackers of Anonymous Ukraine have leaked 130 Mb of emails allegedly stolen from the regional offices of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform (UDAR), the party led by politician and former professional boxer Vitali Klitschko.
The attack is part of the campaign called OpIndependence, which aims at keeping Ukraine independent from NATO, the EU and other entities.
The most interesting of the leaked emails, totaling 9 Mb, have been uploaded separately on several file sharing websites.
The hackers accuse the UDAR of “trying to hurl Ukraine into chaos.”
“We strongly recommend everyone to look through these documents. You will find out a lot of interesting details about how Klitschko and his party dirt not only on their opponents but on their allies too in their race for power and money,” the hackers said.
They added, “Once again we appeal to the President Yanukovych. People of Ukraine urge you to restore order and bring calm and stability. It’s time to disperse this gang of robbers and Nazis! Ukraine must be unified and independent!!”
Meanwhile, anti-government protests continue in Ukraine. On Sunday, Al Jazeera reported that 70,000 people gathered on the streets of Kiev demanding a pro-Western government.
