Occupiers are preparing mass cyber attacks on critical infrastructure objects in Ukraine and its allies – DI
Russian occupiers are preparing massive cyberattacks on critical infrastructure facilities of Ukrainian enterprises and critical infrastructure institutions of Ukraine's allies.
This was announced by the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
According to the DI, the Kremlin will primarily target energy industry enterprises. These operations will build on the previous experience from conducting cyberattacks on Ukraine's energy systems in 2015 and 2016.
"Through this, the enemy will try to amplify the effect of missile strikes on electricity supply facilities, primarily in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine. The occupiers' command is convinced that this will lead to a slowdown in the Ukrainian Defense Forces' offensive," the message reads.
The Kremlin also intends to increase the intensity of DDoS attacks on the critical infrastructure of Ukraine's closest allies, primarily Poland and the Baltic states.
As IMI reported, on April 2, the SBU reported that the majority of Russian cyberattacks on the resources of the Ukrainian state authorities and military administration occurred on the night of Russia's full-scale invasion. The enemy aimed to destroy Ukraine's entire cyber defense. Thus, on the night of the invasion, cyber experts detected and neutralized over 120 powerful cyber attacks on state resources.
