The EU is going to help Ukraine in response to a cyber attack

The EU has convened an emergency meeting of community ambassadors to decide how to help Ukraine respond to a cyberattack and what technical assistance it can provide to improve its ability to resist such attacks. This was stated by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell upon his arrival at an informal meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Brest, France. His speech was broadcast on the website of the European Commission.

Borrell promised that all possible resources would be mobilized to help Ukraine in this situation.

He also stressed that the European Union has no evidence, but it can guess who is involved in the cyber attack on Ukraine.

Earlier, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) stated that the Russian special services were involved in cyber attacks that have been carried out on the state bodies of the country since 2014.

It is noted that hackers from the Armageddon group carried out more than 5 thousand cyber attacks on government agencies and critical infrastructure in Ukraine. The SBU believes that the members of this association are connected with the Russian special services.

Russia has repeatedly rejected the accusations of Western countries in cyberattacks. In addition, Moscow has repeatedly expressed its willingness to cooperate on cybersecurity issues.
