NATO specialists will help Ukraine to protect itself from the consequences of massive cyber attack on corporate networks and public authorities, which occurred yesterday, June 27.

"We are actively cooperating with Ukraine in this direction. We have already established trust fund for cybersecurity and NATO specialists will be helping Ukraine," he said.

Stoltenberg also added that the new world cyberattack requires NATO to enhance cyber security, and the alliance is working in this direction.
