Ukraine is “99.9%” sure Russia was behind a massive cyber attack against Ukrainian government websites and the hack could signal a new physical invasion will follow, the president’s top security official has told Sky News.
Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, revealed that some areas within the government’s security and defence departments have been put on an even higher state of alert than usual in case of further hostilities.
He noted that the cyber attack was a “textbook” move ahead of real-world military action.
Asked if a new Russian invasion could happen as early as the weekend, Mr Danilov said: “It can happen on any day. Again, it depends only on one person – [Russian President] Vladimir Putin.”
