This is the second time in a week that Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc. MOL has been mentioned on the “blacklist” of the international hacker group, Anonymous. This might indicate an imminent cyber attack.
For the second time in a week, the international hacker group Anonymous sent threatening messages to a number of multinational companies still operating in Russia, reported Hungarian news portal Azonnali.
The international hacker group, Anonymous, called on its followers to boycott companies that have not left Russia or suspended their activities in the face of Russian aggression against Ukraine and the escalating war. Besides large multinational companies such as Decathlon, Metro, Auchan, and Acer,
Hungarian oil and gas flagship MOL is also mentioned on the “blacklist”.
The threat has intensified since the recent massacre in Bucha. In a Twitter post, the hacker group posted the following message to the blacklisted companies:
“What other evidence is needed for those multinational companies which are still doing bloody business in Russia? If it’s difficult for you to leave Russia immediately even after the Bucha Massacre, then it will be easy for us to involve you in our cyber war against Russia.”
Concerning MOL, it is said to still be operating in Russia to exploit the Baitugan oil field. Based on the company’s website, it is currently carried out by MOL-RUSS LLC, a Moscow-based company with 150 employees.
Ukraine’s ambassador to Budapest Lyubov Nepop said there is no conflict between Viktor Orban and Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
Despite preliminary assumptions, Ukraine was not and could not have been a participant in the Hungarian elections, just as Volodymyr Zelenskiy could not have been an opponent of Viktor Orbán or any other Hungarian politician, the diplomat said.
According to the head of Ukrainian diplomacy in Hungary, Viktor Orbán’s statement that he called Volodymyr Zelenskiy his opponent was only due to emotional excitement over his election victory, which is understandable. Similarly, Ukrainians’ feelings over the war are understandable. The diplomat highlighted that the focus should now be on ending the war, for which Ukraine is looking to Hungary for support, reported Kárpáthír.
