Several major Ukrainian state organizations, including Naftogaz (state-run energy company), Ukrposhta (national postal service), Ukrtransbezpeka (state transport safety agency), and others, reported cyberattacks on their systems.
Naftogaz mentioned a “large-scale cyberattack,” resulting in the unavailability of websites and the call center.
Ukrposhta reported a “significant technical failure” in its IT systems, attributing it to an attack on the information infrastructure of its partners.
Ukrtransbezpeka faced problems with its data center.
A convention center and the ticket sales system for Ukrainian state railways also reported suspected cyberattacks. A source close to the Ukrainian government blamed Russian intelligence for the attacks, stating that the victims included entities in the finance and banking sector.
The attacks are considered less severe compared to a major attack and outage last month at Kyivstar, Ukraine’s largest mobile operator. Ukrainian authorities often attribute cyberattacks to Russia, which invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
