Websites of Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and national parliament were down Wednesday, in what the country's digital minister described as "another massive [distributed denial-of-service] DDoS attack on our state." Banks and government websites were inaccessible, Mykhailo Fedorov, minister of digital transformation, said on Telegram, adding some services were being restored and others disrupted intentionally to "minimize the damage from the attack." At the time of writing, the website of the national parliament and the cabinet of ministers were already restored, while the foreign affairs ministry's website was still inaccessible. It's the second time in just days that Ukrainian government services are disrupted with large-scale DDoS attacks, in which hacking groups use large networks of computers to send an avalanche of traffic to certain websites, forcing the websites to go down. Last week, banks and government websites suffered a very similar incident that government officials said was the largest-ever DDoS attack on the country. The U.S., U.K. and Australia in past days have come out with statements blaming Russia's military intelligence service GRU for being behind last week's DDoS attack.


The Kremlin will next take down Ukraine's electric distribution grid.

Sounds a very sensible move as Moscow knows that Kiev were planning False Flags in the independent Republics .

Standard fare for Russia but good to see them following Chapter One from the International Playbook .

Same obvious step they took with Tiblisi in August '08 . I remember it as though it was yesterday . Still have the

defence report that the Government sent me .
