The U.S. sent its specialists to Ukraine to help combat Russian cyber-attacks. We are talking about dozens of such specialists.

This was reported by Reuters, which quoted U.S. Army Major General William Hartman as saying.


He said the United States is sending more of its cyber forces overseas to help other countries, including Ukraine, fight hackers.

"The U.S. Armed Forces Cyber National Mission Force (CNMF) has had dispatched 43 specialists to Ukraine, which has been battling Russian cyber onslaughts amid the war there. Those are defense teams we send, and (they) hunt for shared adversaries, find tools and capabilities," Hartman said.

He said the CNMF has conducted 47 defense cyber operations in 20 countries in the past three years.

Hartman also added that CNMF specialists are known for preventing potential attacks on three U.S. federal agencies.

They also uncovered an Iranian hacking group that broke the voting system in a U.S. city, which was used to report the 2020 election results.
