Ukraine’s Security Service, the SBU, warns those who register new domain names to refrain from using Russian e-mails.
The SBU sent the letter to the Internet Association of Ukraine, which released the letter on its website. The note says that the SBU’s information security department found numerous law breaches in this area. These breaches were committed by owners of certain domain names ‘.ua’, ‘ukr.’ and ‘gov.ua’.
According to the Security Service, the mentioned owners used Russian e-mail services Yandex.ru and Mail.ru to manage their accounts. Such actions contradict the April 2017 presidential decree, which imposes sanctions on Russian media and web services in Ukraine.
SBU’s information security department asks the Internet Association of Ukraine to explain the owners of domain names that the Russian mail services must not be used fore registration and management of accounts.
