Kyiv, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jan, 2022 ) :Several key Ukrainian government websites were taken offline Friday, authorities said, in a sweeping cyber attack that came against the backdrop of rising tensions between Russia and Ukraine's Western allies.
"Our specialists are already working on restoring the work of IT systems, and the cyber police opened an investigation," the foreign ministry said.
The foreign ministry website earlier Friday was displaying a message in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish languages.
"Ukrainians! All your personal data ... have been deleted and are impossible to restore. All information about you has become public, be afraid and expect the worst." "This is for your past, present and future," it said, mentioning two ultra-nationalist organisations in Ukraine.
The education ministry said that authorities -- including the SBU security service and cyberpolice -- were working to address the issue.
