Russia targets Ukrainian IT sphere, banking and communications

Russia has been actively targeting Ukraine’s IT sphere, banking, and communications infrastructure through a series of cyberattacks. The recent attack on Ukraine’s largest mobile operator, Kyivstar, resulted in disruptions to air raid warning services and some banking services for Ukrainians.

The attack on Kyivstar is just one example of Russia’s ongoing assault on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure. These attacks not only disrupt daily life for Ukrainians but also have broader implications, such as hindering the country’s ability to communicate and conduct financial transactions effectively.

As Ukraine continues to face these cyber threats, the international community can play a crucial role in supporting the country’s defence against Russian cyber warfare. Technological assistance, cybersecurity training, and intelligence sharing can bolster Ukraine’s ability to defend its IT, banking, and communications systems against future attacks.
