Ukraine had to deal with a lot of cyber attacks from Russia, so it enjoys a rich experience of countering these. Ukraine is ready to share this experience with the U.S., said Ambassador Oksana Markarova. Ukrinform news agency cited her as saying. 

"In this regard, Ukraine has a lot to share. We dealt with a lot of cyber attacks from Russia before they were detected here, in the United States. And we know what to do in such cases", Markarova said.

She added that the sides, namely Ukraine, the U.S., and European experts can develop a plan to improve the efficiency of coordinated response to this challenge.
