On November 7, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Russian hackers targeted the United News telethon, reports "Detector Media", citing its own sources.

The broadcast was interrupted by Russian music videos and propaganda. The Russians attacked the satellite signal.

However, the experts noticed and repelled the attack in time.

As the IMI reported, in March 2022, Russian hackers accessed the Ukraine 24 ticker line and the Segodnya website to broadcast a fake address from President Volodymyr Zelensky about Ukraine "surrendering".

In June 2022, the Security Service of Ukraine announced that it had blocked attempts by Russian special services to hack the electronic systems of Ukrainian TV channels participating in the national telethon.

In September 2023, the "United News" team said that Russian media were spreading fake news about cuts in the livestream of President Zelensky's UN speech. In the statement published on the 1+1 website (one of the participating channels), the telethon channels said this information was misleading and called on the journalistic community and digital content creators to fight back against the Russian fake. The fake news was posted by the pro-Russian propagandist Anatoliy Shariy, who uploaded the edited video on his Telegram channel.
