This was announced by National Security and Defense Council Secretary in a commentary, Censor.NET reports citing the NSDC press service.
According to Turchynov, a week ago an active phase of large-scale cyber attacks against information websites of government bodies, infrastructure facilities, and non-governmental agencies was launched.
"These attacks were planned in advance and coordinated from a center located in the Russian Federation," the NSDC secretary said.
"One of the main tasks of the cyber criminals was to destabilize financial and banking sector of Ukraine before the New Year, which would interrupt social payments, impede the work of state agencies, and block the budget process," Turchynov said.
The NSDC secretary said none of the attacked computer systems were harmed and normal operations have been restored.
The matter of strengthening cyber protection of the governmental websites under conditions of hybrid war with the Russian Federation will be discussed at today's meeting of the National coordination center for cyber security with the government, Turchynov said.
