Massive cyber attack warns Ukraine to "expect the worst" amid tensions with Russia
CA, 14 Jan 2022
A massive cyber attack warning Ukrainians to "be afraid and expect the worst" hit government websites late on Thursday, leaving some websites inaccessible on Friday morning and prompting Kyiv to open an investigation.
The European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell condemned the cyber attack, saying the EU's political and security committee and cyber units would meet to decide how to respond and help Kyiv.
"We are going to mobilize all our resources to help Ukraine to tackle this cyber attack. Sadly, we knew it could happen," Borrell said.
The cyber attack, which targeted the foreign ministry, the cabinet of ministers and the security and defense council among others, comes as Kyiv and its allies have sounded the alarm about a possible new Russian military offensive against Ukraine.
