As per the statement of the Ministry of Digital Development,” The evidence that has been discovered in the investigation taken out by the ministry of Ukraine indicates that Russia is behind the cyberattack”.

Earlier on Sunday, Microsoft informed that the computer systems of the Ukrainian government agencies and organisations had been attacked by the destructive malware named ransomware. Dozens of computer systems have been infected by the virus, which has stopped the functioning of the computers in the country.

According to the statement of the ministry,” Moscow is continuously in a wage to initiate a hybrid war and is actively building up its forces in the information and cyberspaces”.

The fingers are pointed at Russia because of its invasion at the Ukrainian borders with some 100,000 soldiers. The reason behind the invasion is that Russia wants commitment from the West that they would never be part of NATO.

Moreover, Russia and US officials have organised a meeting on the topic in Geneva, but there was no hint of any solutions on the matter.

Further, Russia has been warned by Western powers that they would like massive consequences if they were trying to invade Ukraine again.

Microsoft also asserted that they don’t have the data on how many more organizations in Ukraine or elsewhere might be affected and expected to learn of more infections in the system.

Oleh Derevianko, a top private-sector cybersecurity executive in Kyiv, asserted that through the shared software supplier in a supply chain, the intruders want to penetrate the networks of government.

Russia had also attacked the country in 2017 with one of the destructive cyberattacks with the virus named NotPetya virus, which caused more than $10bn in damage globally.
