Ukrainian IT Army claims to obtain personal data of all Wagner mercenaries

The Ukrainian IT Army, a government-led project uniting IT specialists in conducting cyberoperations against Russia, says it hacked the website of Wagner private military company and obtained personal data of the mercenaries. This paramilitary organization has recently started recruiting Russian prisoners for the war in Ukraine.

“We have all personal data of mercenaries!” the IT Army said in a Telegram post. “Every executioner, murderer and rapist will be severely punished. Revenge is inevitable!”

Wagner, ostensibly financed and organized by Putin’s chef Yevgeny Prigozhin, has been involved in Ukraine since Russia’s first invasion in 2014. They are also present in other conflicts around the world.
