The Biden administration’s deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technologies, Anne Neuberger, said the U.S. rapidly linked last week’s DDoS attacks against Ukraine’s defense ministry and significant banks to Russian GRU military intelligence officers. She said the U.S. was publicly blaming the Kremlin because of a need to “call out the behavior quickly.”
The UK joined the U.S. to blame the GRU military intelligence agency for the distributed denial-of-service attacks that unfolded as tensions escalated between Russia and Ukraine. “The attack showed a continued disregard for Ukrainian sovereignty. This activity is yet another example of Russia’s aggressive acts against Ukraine,” a Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office representative said in a statement. (Eric Tucker / Associated Press)
