The European Union has condemned the cyber attacks against Ukraine and offered help as the European External Action Service (EEAS) reported citing Head of EU diplomacy Josep Borrell.

"This morning we learned about the cyber attacks against Ukraine. This deserves the harshest condemnation. We convened an urgent meeting of political committee ambassadors this morning to consider how to respond and what technical assistance we can offer Ukraine to strengthen resilience to such attacks," Borrell said.

It is noted that the EU suspected that this could happen, so now they are going to mobilize all resources to help Ukraine cope with this cyber attack.

Borrell notes that right now it is difficult to say exactly who is behind these cyberattacks.

"It's hard to say who's behind it. I can't accuse anyone because I have no evidence, but we can present," the head of EU diplomacy said.

We remind that a large-scale hacker attack was held on the websites of the Ukrainian government this night. The sites of the Cabinet of Ministers, Ministry of Community and Territory Development, Ministry of Sports, Ministry of Energy, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agricultural Policy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the State Treasury were hit.

Deputy Chairman of the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine on digital development, digital transformation, and digitalization Viktor Zhora said that the agency attributes the large-scale hacking attack on government agencies to "the fact of constant aggression". Zhora made a statement about this effect on the air of UkrLive.
