Newsline: EU Top Diplomat Condemns Ukraine Cyber Attack

The European Union’s top diplomat condemned on Friday a cyber attack on Ukraine and said the EU’s political and security committee and cyber units would meet to decide how to respond and help Kyiv. 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. “We are going to mobilise all our resources to help Ukraine to tackle this cyber attack. Sadly, we knew it could happen,” Josep Borrell told reporters at an EU foreign ministers’ meeting in the western French city of Brest. “It’s difficult to say (who is behind it). I can’t blame anybody as I have no proof, but we can imagine.” (https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2022-01-14/eu-top-diplomat-condemns-ukraine-cyber-attack-offers-help) The cyber attack, which targeted the foreign ministry, the cabinet of ministers and the security and defence council among others, comes as Kyiv and its allies have sounded the alarm about a possible new Russian military offensive against Ukraine.
