“All the authorities responsible for cybersecurity worked to counter these attacks and eliminate them,” Fedorov was quoted by the Interfax-Ukraine news agency as saying.

The distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, which cost an estimated “millions of U.S. dollars,” were prepared beforehand and were aimed at destabilizing the situation and sowing panic in Ukraine, the minister said.
