On July 11, the websites of the Mykolaiv online publications "Prestupnosti.NET" and "Niklife," which are part of the "Ukrainian Media Group" news agency, were subjected to a large-scale DDoS attack.

"Prestupnosti.NET" editor-in-chief Anatoliy Chubachenko informed the IMI representative in Mykolaiv region about this.

"On the evening of July 11, the website was targeted by a large-scale hacker attack. Our website administrators, who help us with its maintenance, were able to repel it with what functionality they already had. We consider it a link in the same chain of events as the hacking of our YouTube channel and my Facebook account. We think that these are the same people who have ties with the russian special services," he said.

Chubachenko considers the reason for the attack to be the editors' professional activities in covering the true facts of the full-scale war that russia has unleashed against the Ukrainian people.

"Towards late evening, the website was restored, and currently both of our websites – Prestupnosti.NET and NikLife – are working normally," he said.

As IMI reported, gained access to the personal Facebook page of Mykolaiv online media "Prestupnosti.NET" editor-in-chief Anatoly Chubachenko and deleted it. In addition, attackers took over and deleted the media outlet's YouTube channel. The editors believe that this is all the work of russian special services or russian hackers.

In May, Mykolaiv online publication "NykVesty" suffered a DDoS attack.
