On Wednesday, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) issued the first list of rules for civilian hackers ever created.
Dubbed a "Geneva Code of cyber-war", it was initially criticised as unworkable.
But now Ukrainian and Russian hackers say they will comply with the rules.
Since the invasion of Ukraine there has been a steady stream of disruptive cyber-attacks against public services in both Ukraine and Russia with varying degrees of impact.
In April, the UK's National Cyber Security Centre highlighted groups like Killnet as a new threat facing Ukraine allies, warning UK businesses that attacks from them on are on rise.
If Killnet keeps to its word, then cyber-attacks on civilian targets, including those of Ukraine's allies, will stop.
