russian criminals are once again trying to deprive Ukrainians of access to the Internet and truthful information, to sow panic. In addition, the russians are no longer even trying to hide their actions and spread reports of attacks on the Internet .
However, in general, most attacks on Ukraine fail and are successfully repulsed, which once again demonstrates the effective cybersecurity systems that Ukrainian representatives of government agencies and businesses have managed to build. According to Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy, the attack on Lviv City Council was the largest in recent years. But «Moscow’s misfortunes could not cause serious damage, no matter how hard they tried. A small part of the services and computers of the city council employees were shut down» .
Since the beginning of the year, almost 36,000 attacks on the servers of state authorities have been repulsed in Dnipropetrovsk region. This is ten times more than usual .
The EU condemns russia’s cyber-attack on Ukraine an hour before the Kremlin’s war, which caused disruptions not only in Ukraine but also in several EU countries. A statement from the EU High Representative on behalf of all 27 member states said the unacceptable cyber attack was further evidence of russia’s irresponsible behavior in cyberspace as part of its illegal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Such behavior contradicts the expectations of all UN member states regarding the responsible behavior and intentions of states in cyberspace .
A joint statement from Canada’s foreign, defense and public security ministers said that Canada, along with the United States, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and EU member states, would continue to develop stable cyberspace «based on the application and respect of international law and responsible conduct in cyberspace» .
