The government's CERT-UA computer emergency response team registered and processed 3,207 cyber incidents during that period.

As we reported earlier, Russian military hackers tried to tap into the Ukrainian gas company which once employed Hunter Biden on its board.

According to the experts, the timing and scale of the attacks suggested that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens.
