A large-scale hacker intervention occurred in Ukraine on Thursday night. The attack downed the pages of several ministries, the Cabinet itself, the State Treasury and the website of Diya app.

"Ukrainian! All your personal data was uploaded in the general network. All data on your PC is deleted and can't be restored. All information about you became public. Beware and expect the worst. This is for your past, current and future lives. For Volyn, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, for Halychyna, Polissya and historical lands", reads the message in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish languages that may be seen on the home page of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry.

Earlier, hackers targeted the websites of Office of the President and Security Service. All threats were neutralized thanks to the response of cyber security forces.
