Cyber Warfare, EU accuses Russia on the KA-SAT satellite cyberattack

EU accuses Russia on the KA-SAT satellite cyberattack: It took place one hour before the unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine, thus facilitating the military aggression

Russia is behind the DDoS cyberattack against the KA-SAT. It has been denounced by the EU, that strongly condemns the cyber warfare aggression against Ukraine, “which targeted the satellite KA-SAT network, operated by Viasat”. The cyberattack took place one hour before Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 thus facilitating the military aggression. This cyberattack had a significant impact causing indiscriminate communication outages and disruptions across several public authorities, businesses and users in Ukraine, as well as affecting several EU Member States. The European Union, working closely with its partners, is considering further steps to prevent, discourage, deter and respond to such malicious behaviour in cyberspace. The European Union will continue to provide coordinated political, financial and material support to Ukraine to strengthen its cyber resilience. “Russia must stop this war and bring an end to the senseless human suffering immediately,” EU concluded.
