Update: ATT says the event this morning was due to system expansion, not a cyber attack. I am sure our enemies were still paying attention. Here is the network statement:

Based on our initial review, we believe that today’s outage was caused by the application and execution of an incorrect process used as we were expanding our network, not a cyber attack. We are continuing our assessment of today’s outage to ensure we keep delivering the service that our customers deserve.

One of the Polish “farmers” who left yesterday with a poster “Putin will deal with Ukraine, Brussels, and our government” turned out to be Russian intelligence agent Pyotr Panasyuk, included in the Ukrainian “Peacemaker” database (his profile is on the third screen) .

On his social networks, he supports the occupiers and promotes Russian aggression, while calling himself “a qualified historian, geopolitician, geostrategist (bitch, another one).

“Peacemaker” indicates Panasyuk’s connection with Rafal Meckler, the leader of the Polish ultra-right (he talked about him in the video “Europe, swarm trenches”).

The head of the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, Marcin Kerwiński , said yesterday that measures had been taken against the “farmer”.

As I said in the video, the Kremlin agents are very firmly entrenched in the countries of Eastern Europe (and not only), and European governments must show political will, otherwise the “Russian World” will come to them.
