All information about you has gone public, be afraid and expect the worst. This is for your past, present and future, ”stated a message visible on hacked government websites, written in Ukrainian, russo e Polish.

One high official Ukrainian security officials finally revealed:

All cybersecurity subjects were aware of these possible provocations by the Russian Federation. Therefore, the response to these incidents is carried out as usual.
