Hackers create website to prank call Russian officials and waste their time

The pranksters, behind a website called WasteRussianTime.today, have cleverly created an auto call system to use as a "weapon" to annoy Moscow's government workers, ultimately distracting them from the military campaign.

A short clip of audio has been released by the hackers.
