On the night of January 13-14, hackers targeted Ukrainian government websites with a large-scale cyber attack.  

The Ministry of Education reported on its Facebook page that their official website was temporarily down.

Debugging is currently underway. The SBU and cyberpolice were involved in the work.

The websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, the State Emergency Service, the National Police, Diya and others are not open either, as Babel reported. At the same time, the websites of the Cabinet of Ministers and the Verkhovna Rada are currently operational.

On some sites, hackers left messgaes warning of alleged mass leaks of personal data, they left this message in three languages: Russian, Ukrainian and Polish.

"Ukrainian! All your personal data has been uploaded to the public network. All data on the computer is destroyed, it is impossible to recover them. All information about you has become public, be afraid and expect the worst, "- said these messages.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleh Nikolenko confirmed that a hacker attack had taken place on the agency's website. "As a result of the massive hacking attack, the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a number of other state bodies are temporarily down. Our specialists are already working on restoring the work of IT systems. We apologize for any inconvenience, "he wrote.

In late December, The New York Times warned that Russia was preparing large-scale cyber attacks on Ukraine's energy system and government web resources. According to the daily, the United States and Great Britain have sent cyberwar experts to Ukraine to prepare Ukrainian specialists for hacker attacks. Experts this month note a strong intensification of Russian hackers, which may be linked to the Russian Central Intelligence Agency.
