The hackers added the #Ukraine hashtag to their post.

On January 14, the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Ministry of Education and Science, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food were subjected to a massive cyber attack. Hackers posted messages in which they promised to destroy the personal data of Ukrainians posted on the Web.

On February 15, the Information Security Center of Ukraine reported a major DDoS attack on the websites of the Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces of the country, Privatbank and Oschadbank. The department admitted that Russia could allegedly be behind the attack. No evidence was provided.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address that, in response to an appeal from the leaders of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), he had decided to conduct an operation to protect Donbass. The Russian leader stressed that Moscow’s plans do not include the occupation of Ukrainian territories.

After that, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of hitting military infrastructure and introduced martial law throughout the country.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the operation was an attempt to prevent a global war. She stressed that a bloody war with civilian casualties had been waged in Donbass for eight years. Zakharova also stated that the war was fought on various fronts, including sanctions and information.

On February 21, the heads of the DPR and LPR, Denis Pushilin and Leonid Pasechnik, asked Putin to recognize the independence of the republics. The corresponding decrees were signed in the evening of the same day. In the presence of the leaders of the republics, the President of the Russian Federation also signed treaties of friendship, cooperation and assistance.

Since 2014, the Ukrainian authorities have been conducting a military operation against the inhabitants of Donbass, who refused to recognize the results of the coup d’état and the new government in Ukraine. At the same time, Kiev blames Moscow for the current situation.
