Amid Russian tensions, Ukraine hit by cyberattack on official websites


Mass defacements of Ukrainian government sites are consistent with past incidents as tensions have grown in region. In conjunction with the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, “patriotic” hackers sympathetic to Russia blocked access to Georgian government websites and defaced a Ministry of Foreign Affairs site, juxtaposing pictures of the Georgian president with pictures of Adolf Hitler. In 2019, hackers with Russia’s military spy agency, GRU, carried out mass defacements of Georgian government sites.
