ArmInfo.Recently, cases of hacking and use of hacked accounts by the Azerbaijani side have become more frequent in order to carry out anti-Armenian propaganda, hostility and destabilization in Armenian society. This was stated by Advisor to the President of Artsakh on security issues Tigran Abrahamyan, having published the corresponding post on his Facebook page.
In the published post, the presidential adviser urges the competent authorities to tackle the problem, stop such cases, and work with the public.
For several months now, as in the groups operating in Armenia, fake news has been spread through hacked profiles. Various hacked users whose profiles are managed by Azerbaijanis publish posts around the internal political situation of Armenia and Artsakh, its escalation, violation of public relations, the false agenda of Armenia and Artsakh, aimed at the emergence or deepening of internal hostility. Be that as it may, for several months now - fake information has been distributed in various groups on behalf of my friend (and not only on his behalf). All publications with similar content are a call to take to the streets and the organization of rallies against Nikol Pashinyan. Each time we write to administrators, we try to prevent the spread of fake news by Azerbaijanis in groups, but the vast majority of administrators do not respond. Leaving comments under a post is also inefficient. This is a problem requiring a comprehensive solution>, Abrahamyan said.
Yesterday, ICHD Executive Director Tevan Poghosyan called ensuring the information security of Armenia a priority in anticipation of the parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan and during the elections coming up in Artsakh. The expert believes that the information field of Armenia should not only resist Azerbaijani or other misinformation, but it is necessary to predict a possible change in the media field and quickly respond to these actions.
