LONDON (Reuters) – Ukraine’s “IT army” of volunteer hackers on Thursday announced a new set of targets – including the Belarusian railway network and Russia’s home-grown satellite navigation system GLONASS.

“We must mobilize and intensify our efforts as much as possible,” says a post on the Telegram channel IT Army.

The post listed the group’s top priorities, including Belarusian railways, Russian telecom companies and GLONASS, Russia’s alternative to the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite navigation network.

Ukraine has called on its hacker underground to help protect critical infrastructure and conduct cyber-espionage missions against Russian troops, Reuters previously reported. Kyiv announced the formation of its “IT army” on Saturday.

A Belarus-focused hacking team that served as a key base for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine called Belarusian cyber-partisans and told Reuters on Tuesday they had disabled rail transport systems there and attacked the network because it had been used to transport Russian be soldiers.

Russia is calling its actions in Ukraine a “special operation” aimed not at occupying territory but at destroying and capturing its southern neighbor’s military capabilities, which it considers dangerous nationalists.
