Russian Prime Minister's twitter account hacked

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Someone apparently took control of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s Russian-language Twitteraccount Thursday.

The verified account, @MedvedevRussia, first raised suspicion with a tweet sent out at 11:12 pm PDT which read (via Google Translate): “I am resigning. Ashamed of the actions of the government. Sorry.”

Medvedev’s English-language account did not appear to be affected.

On the apparently hacked account, updates and other retweets seemed to express anger at Russian government policies. “Maybe better to ban electricity? Promise in the near future the government and think about it. But without me,” another tweet read (via Google Translate).

“I have long wanted to say. Vova! You are wrong!” read another. And later: “Russian citizens should not suffer because of problems in the perception of common sense from the top leadership of the country.”
