Sep 22, 2023

Russia is using hackers to attack the computer systems of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies in an attempt to identify and obtain evidence related to Russian war crimes.


This was stated by the head of the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, RBC-Ukraine reports citing Reuters.

"Hackers working for Russia's foreign, domestic and military intelligence services have intensified digital intrusion campaigns against the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine and agencies that document war crimes," the statement reads.

According to him, there has been a change in direction: from a focus on energy facilities to law enforcement agencies, which have not previously been subject to such frequent cyberattacks.

"This shift toward courts, prosecutors and law enforcement agencies shows that hackers are collecting evidence of Russia's war crimes in Ukraine in order to monitor Ukrainian investigations," he added.
