Ukraine expressed its solidarity with Georgia in condemning Russia's cyber attacks, about which Tbilisi had reported days before. Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs informs about it.

"Russia has once again demonstrated its disregard for the rules and principles of international law. Ukraine remains unfaltering in supporting Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders," the message reads.

The Ministry also reminded about Russia's string of cyber attacks against Ukraine's national objects of critical infrastructure that took place in 2015.

"Particularly cynical in this regard are Russia's efforts to push international initiatives on peaceful usage of cyberspace at international venues. Ukraine stands for the responsibility of those who intentionally organize and carry out cyber attacks. We call on the international community to take all measures to identify and hold accountable those individuals and particular states that coordinate and fund illegal activity in global cyberspace," the statement said. 

As we reported earlier, Russian military hackers have been trying to tap into the Ukrainian gas company, on board of which Hunter Biden served.

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