Cyber Attack On Ukraine: According to information provided by Ukraine, the websites of the Ministry of Defense, the military, and two government banks have been the victims of cyberattacks. It is possible that Russia has a hand in this.
Tensions between the two countries remain high despite the return of some Russian tanks and military vehicles from the Ukrainian border. Instead of launching a direct military attack on Ukraine, Russia has played a big role. Russia has launched a vicious cyber-attack on Ukraine without firing a single shot. This is likely to affect much of Ukraine's operations.
According to information provided by Ukraine on Tuesday, the websites of the Ministry of Defense, the military, and two state-owned banks have been the victims of cyberattacks. It is possible that Russia has a hand in this.
News of the cyber attack comes as large numbers of Russian troops are training on the Ukrainian border. Military strikes on Ukraine (Russian to Invade Ukraine) continue.
Banks and military websites targeted:
The cyberattack targeted the country's two largest banks and financial institutions, Oschadbank state savings bank and Privat. Services on both websites resumed sometime on Tuesday. However, the military website was shut down for several hours.
An error message 'undergoing technical maintenance' also appeared on the Ministry of Defense website. A similar message appeared on the army's website.
According to officials, the hacking disrupted the websites of the country's cabinet, seven ministries, the treasury, the national disaster service, and the state service for passports and vaccination certificates.
'Hurry to a conclusion:
Earlier, in early January, hackers targeted dozens of websites in Ukraine. Many government websites in Ukraine were temporarily shut down after massive cyber attacks. Ukraine's foreign ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said in a statement that "it is too early to say who is behind the attack."
Russia, on the other hand, has denied any involvement in the attack. 'It would be hasty to reach any conclusion. An investigation is underway, but Russia has a long history of cyber-attacks against Ukraine.
Biden warns Russia:
