The “huge cyber attack” has affected many government websites in Ukraine, including the Foreign Ministry’s website, a spokesman said.
“Due to the massive cyber attack, the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and many other government agencies are temporarily down,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
“Our experts are already working to restore the functioning of information systems, and cyber police have launched an investigation.”
Asked if Russia was suspected of the attack, the spokesman replied: “It is too early to draw conclusions, but there is a long record of Russian attacks on Ukraine.”
Reuters reported that in addition to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cabinet of Ministers, Agricultural Policy, the Security and Defense Council and the Ministry of Education, it also seems to be not working.
