  • Serhiy Demedyuk, the deputy secretary of the national security and defence council, said Ukraine was working to establish who obtained such access, whether it was done externally or through an insider.
  • The comments are the first detailed explanation of how multiple Ukrainian websites were hit by a cyber strike that left a warning to “be afraid and expect the worst”, at a time when Russia has amassed troops near Ukraine’s borders.
  • “According to the preliminary conclusions of our experts … today’s attack occurred due to the use by third parties of access to the software administration rights of a company that had an advantage in developing websites for government agencies,” Demedyuk said in written comments.
