Ukraine: Large-scale cyberattack on government websites

Several Ukrainian government websites have been subjected to a large-scale cyber attack. The attack, which was not announced, comes at a time of heightened tensions between Kiev and Moscow.

“The official website of the Ministry of Education and Science is temporarily closed,” as stated on the ministry’s Facebook page. Other ministries’ websites, including the emergency website, are also inaccessible, AFP found.

“It is too early to draw conclusions, but in the past there is a long list of precedents of Russian attacks on Ukraine,” ministry spokesman Ole Nikolenko said in response to a question about the incident.
