WHAT IS GOING ON?

On February 24th 2022, Russia launched a large-scale military invasion of Ukraine, one of its neighbors to the southwest, marking an escalation to a conflict that began in 2014. Following Ukraine’s Revolution of Dignity in 2014, Russia had annexed Crimea and Russian-backed separatist forces had seized part of the Donbas in eastern Ukraine, leading to an eight-year war in the region.

The invasion received widespread international condemnation, including new sanctions imposed on Russia, triggering a financial crisis. Global protests took place against the invasion, while protests in Russia were met with mass arrests. Many reports called the invasion the largest conventional warfare attack in Europe since World War II.

DCG 201 STANCE ON THE INVASION OF UKRAINE

We at DCG 201 (formally DEFCON 201 & DC 201) continue to follow our stances on previous conflicts & crisis. We denounce what Russia’s imperialistic invasion with it’s ethno-nationalist justification, which is unacceptable and is against the hacker ethics/way of life.

Our hearts go out to the untold of Ukrainians of all types who have been murdered in the conflict including Russians that were sent out to die for the oligarchy’s fascism and the arrest of untold amounts of Russian citizens who protested their tyrannical leadership’s inept decision.
