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.

At the moment, the website of the Cabinet of Ministers, the portal Diia (the mobile application functions normally), the websites of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, the Ministry for Communities and Territories Development, the State Treasury Service, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry for Veterans Affairs, and State Emergency Service are not working.

There was also an attack on the website of the Ministry of Health, but now it is already functioning normally.

The Security Service of Ukraine reports that in order to prevent the attack from spreading to other resources, as well as to localize a technical problem, the work of a number of other government sites that had not been attacked was suspended.

The SSU notes that most of the state resources affected have already been restored, others will be available shortly.
