JEAN-PHILIPPE KSIAZEK/AFP/Getty Images(MOSCOW) — The hacker group Anonymous has struck again, this time targeting the Kremlin’s website just days after Vladimir Putin’s inauguration.

The site was down for about an hour on Wednesday.  Anonymous claimed responsibility, saying it targeted Russian government websites in solidarity with the country’s opposition movement.  The group had vowed to take down the sites last Friday.

The Russian news agency Interfax reported that a spokesman for the Kremlin’s Internet service confirmed that the site was under attack and that other government sites had been affected as well.
