Russian hackers stream a fake address from Zelensky on Channel 24
Russian hackers streamed a fake address by the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, on Channel 24. This was reported on the Channel 24 website.
Nevertheless, the channel notes, they managed to restore broadcasting quickly.
According to the channel, on February 6, the satellite station that transmits the Channel 24 signal through the AMOS satellite was attacked. "Unfortunately, some cable operators are still receiving this signal for further distribution, so this attack affected their packages," the channel notes.
At the same time, the channel says, all other channels delivering their signal – MEGOGO, KyivStarTV and other OTT providers, most cable TV operators and the ASTRA satellite signal, as well as online streaming channels – work as usual.

As IMI reported, in March 2022, Russians hacked the ticker tape of Ukraina 24 TV channel, as well as Segodnya website, and streamed a fake address by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy about an alleged "capitulation."
In June 2022, the Security Service of Ukraine announced that it had thwarted Russian special services' attempts to break into the electronic systems of the Ukrainian TV channels participating in the national telethon.
