A website developed by Polish programmers allows anyone, anywhere in the world to message cellphones and email addresses of random Russian individuals and businesses, reports the Wall Street Journal on Saturday.

The objective of the site, 1920.increated by programmers based in Poland, is to “break down the digital wall of censorship (of Russian President Vladimir – PAP) Putin and ensure that the Russian people are not totally cut off from the world and the reality of this what is Russia doing in Ukraine,” a spokesperson for the group said.

The new website allows people around the world to bypass the Russian propaganda machine by sending individual messages about the war in Ukraine to random people in Russia.

A spokesman for the Poland-based hacker group known as Squad303 – named after the notorious British RAF Polish squadron that played a key role in the fight against Nazi Germany – compared the effort to Cold War-era projects such as Radio Free Europe, which broadcast radio programs in multiple languages ​​across the Iron Curtain.

So far, nearly seven million text messages and two million emails have been sent through the website since its inception a week ago, the spokesperson said.

Sunday marks the eighteenth day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24.
