The European Union’s top diplomat Josep Borrell condemned a cyber attack on Ukraine and said the EU’s political and security committee and cyber units would meet to decide how to respond and help Kyiv, Reuters reports.

Quote"We are going to mobilise all our resources to help Ukraine to tackle this cyber attack. Sadly, we knew it could happen. It’s difficult to say (who is behind it). I can’t blame anybody as I have no proof, but we can imagine,"Josep Borrell said.

Also, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Lind stated the West must confront any Russian aggression. German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock stated that she would travel to Moscow next week for talks on the Ukraine crisis.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson told Reuters it was too early to say who might be behind the attack but said Russia had been behind similar strikes in the past.

Context. On the night of January 13-14, hackers attacked government websites and the portal Diia. The page of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy contains messages with threats in Ukrainian, Russian, and Polish.
