The hacktivists of the Ukrainian IT army managed to block the Russian Platon system. It is used to collect fees from owners of heavy vehicles for moving on highways. Blocking “Platon” will reduce the flow of funds to the budget of the Russian Federation.
The Platon system is designed to withhold payment for overweight from trucks with a permitted weight of 12 tons or more. In the Telegram channel, Ukrainian hacktivists reported that they received confirmation of the digital blocking of Platon from the carriers Pony Express and Business Lines .
