Massive cyberattack downs Ukraine government websites

A large-scale cyberattack was launched Thursday evening on Ukrainian government websites, some of which were not reached on Friday morning.

“It is too early to draw conclusions, but there is a long record of Russian aggressions against Ukraine in the past,” said ministry spokesman Ole Nikolenko, in response to a question about who was behind the attack.

The websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cabinet, Agricultural Policy, Security and Defense Council, and Ministry of Education do not seem to be working.
