According to the SBU, Russian hackers tried to gain access to classified information held by the highest institutions of state power in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) said on Tuesday that it thwarted a large-scale cyberattack by Russian hackers against government databases containing classified information.
According to the SBU, the purpose of the attack was to gain “access to classified data of the highest institutions of state power in Ukraine.” As the representatives of the department emphasized, Russia was behind the hackers who carried out the attack.
Earlier, Kyiv has already brought charges against Moscow for organizing large-scale cyberattacks as part of a “hybrid war” against Ukraine. Moscow denied these charges.
The FSB has not yet responded to a request for comment on the latest allegation.
The SBU did not provide details of the damage caused by the incident.
In February, Kyiv blamed unnamed Russian cyber structures for attacks on Ukrainian defense and intelligence websites.
