Known as 'IT Army of Ukraine', the group already has over 200,000 subscribers at the time of writing with that number increasing rapidly.

Fedorov tweeted on Saturday (26 February): "We are creating an IT army. We need digital talents. All operational tasks will be given here: https://t.me/itarmyofurraine.

"There will be tasks for everyone. We continue to fight on the cyber front.

"The first task is on the channel for cyber specialists."

Fedorov has also been tweeting the likes of Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg to use their platforms and existing products to help combat the Russian's attack on Ukraine.

The SpaceX billionaire later replied to confirm that the company’s Starlink satellite broadband service was now available in Ukraine, also saying that further terminals were ‘en route’. 

He tweeted back: “Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.” 

Starlink is a space-based system of satellites that SpaceX has been building for years to bring internet access to underserved areas of the world. It refers to its dishes as 'terminals'.

Musk's mother Maye Musk retweeted her son's message, writing: "Wonderful!"
