Anonymous has once again claimed to have breached Russian online security in order to "leak the database of the Ministry of Economic Development" for the nation.

On the morning of Thursday, February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced his "special military operation" against Ukraine, sending his country's forces to invade the nation by land, sea, and air.

Later that day, the cyber collective known as Anonymous announced on Twitter that it was "officially in cyber war against the Russian government."

Following various updates documenting its campaign against Putin's government, Anonymous has now announced another major breach in Russian intelligence.

On Tuesday, March 1, Anonymous tweeted the following: "The #Anonymous collective has leaked the database of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia. #Ukraine".

In a follow-up tweet, the group shared links to a website for users to access. As of this writing, the links are no longer loading.

This recent move against the Russian government comes after the hacking collective also claimed to have leaked "the database of the Russian Ministry of Defence website".

Over the weekend, Anonymous also shared a chilling video message aimed at Putin, telling the Russian leader: "This is not a war that you can win, regardless of how powerful you think you are."

You can watch the full message below:

In the video, an Anonymous member says: "Members of Anonymous have declared cyber war against your aggressive regime, with numerous government websites being taken offline in the past several days.

"A few downed websites is only the beginning, though. Soon you will feel the full wrath of the world’s hackers - many of whom will likely reside from your home country.

"Your secrets may no longer be safe and there is a chance that key components of your government’s infrastructure could be hijacked."

"Now with the invasion of Ukraine, the previous invasions of Georgia and Crimea are starting to come into focus and show a clear strategy; for Russia to recapture key areas that were once held by the Soviet Union.

"The Soviet Union failed many years ago and the world has not forgotten the brutality of that regime."
