Russian Cyber ​​Attack on Ukrainian Systems on February 24

During the Russian invasion in Ukraine on February 24, a massive attack was carried out on the internet connection in Ukraine and some countries of Europe

The United States, Britain, Canada, Estonia, and the European Union have found evidence of Russia's involvement in a massive cyberattack at the moment when enemy tanks crossed the border of Ukraine. This was reported by Reuters.

"This cyberattack had a significant impact, causing indiscriminate disruption of communications between several government agencies, businesses and users in Ukraine, and also affected several EU member states," the EU Council says.

The attack, which was deliberately carried out by Russia, damaged the operation of the Viasat KA-SAT network, which left millions of people in Ukraine without the internet, and in the countries of central Europe, there was a failure to connect not only private networks, but also the operation of wind farms. Liz Truss rightly described it as "a deliberate and malicious attack by Russia against Ukraine."

Russia's primary target was Ukrainian soldiers, as confirmed by Britain's National cyber ​​security center. Also, the British Ministry of foreign affairs reports that there is new evidence of Russia's involvement in this attack. The evidence was provided by the intelligence services of Great Britain to the United States. The government of Canada has become involved in the cyber defense of Ukraine with a desire to “strengthen the defense of this country against an unprovoked and illegal Russian invasion.”

Of course, Russia denies its hacking attacks on Ukraine.

We remind you that the Starlink office also helps Ukraine fight off Russian attacks.
