‘We are watching you’: Russia accused of sending threatening texts to British troops
British soldiers have been warned “We are watching you” in texts and Facebook messages suspected to have been sent by Russia, the Telegraph has learned.
UK troops stationed in Estonia have complained of mystery messages appearing on their social media accounts and mobile phones, sources said.
Officials believe the communications are part of a cyber war designed by Moscow to unsettle and intimidate British troops and their allies.
Nearly 1,000 UK personnel are currently deployed in Estonia in a major NATO operation to deter Russian aggression in Eastern Europe.
