    Oooh, basement keyboard hackers are playing virtual soldier ! Fear the byte !

    People are being killed in an unjustified agression and these clowns think they are contributing to "the war effort".

    Conti states that it will retaliate against any agression of Russian IT. WTF do you think Russia has been doing for the past decade ?

    You started this shit. It's a bit late to get all high and mighty about it.
