European Union strongly condemns cyberattack against Ukraine

January 17, 2022

The European Union has strongly condemned the cyberattack against Ukraine on 14 January, in a declaration by High Representative Josep Borrell.

“This cyber-attack against the Ukrainian government websites is unacceptable. Such actions aim at destabilising Ukraine and spreading disinformation and could contribute to further escalation of the already tense situation,” the declaration says. “Ukraine has reacted quickly and decisively to the attacks thanks to its increased cyber resilience.”

According to the declaration, the European Union and its Member States are in contact with Ukraine and stand ready to provide additional, direct, technical assistance to Ukraine to remediate this attack and further support Ukraine against any destabilising actions, including by further building up its resilience against hybrid and cyber threats.
