Russia is to blame for the DDoS Cyberattacks

The DDoS strikes that brought Ukraine’s banks to a stop were blamed on Russia.

The United States and the United Kingdom announced on Friday that Russian military hackers were behind a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) assaults that momentarily took down Ukrainian banking and government websites.

Anne Neuberger, the US deputy national security advisor, told reporters at the White House that the US was trying to hold Russia accountable for its aggressive cyber-moves.

“Russia prefers to operate in the shadows and relies on a lengthy attribution procedure,” Neuberger added.

“As a result, we’re acting fast to assign blame for the DDoS assaults. We believe the Russian government is to blame for this week’s numerous bank assaults in Ukraine.”

Americans have evidence demonstrating that equipment linked to Russia’s military agency, the GRU, “was spotted transferring huge amounts of communication to Ukraine-based IP addresses and domains,” according to Neuberger.

British officials claimed the GRU was “very probably engaged” in the DDoS, which operates by flooding targeted websites with a firehose of data, in a separate announcement.

In a statement, Britain’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) stated the bombing “showed a persistent contempt for Ukrainian sovereignty.”

“This is just another example of Russia’s hostile behaviour toward Ukraine.”

The FCDO stated, “This disruptive behaviour is unacceptable.”

Russia has denied any involvement in the DDoS attack, which caused very little damage on Tuesday.

Kyiv previously blamed Moscow for the DDoS attack, which occurred amid escalating tensions when Russia began massing troops near the Ukrainian border, raising fears of an attack. Any plans to enhance Russia’s influence in the country have been opposed by the Kremlin.

While the denial of service had a “limited impact,” Neuberger believes that the recent wave of harmful digital activity might be a precursor to “more disruptive cyberattacks following a potential further invasion of Ukraine’s sovereign land.”
