Today, Ukraine has not only to deter Russian aggression on its borders, but also to protect its digital space from cyber attacks. This was emphasized by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an interview to The Washington Post.
"We are facing hybrid war. We are under attack: a military attack, cyberattacks and energy attacks," the Head of State emphasized.
Answering the question what type of war causes greater concern - armed or hybrid, and whether Russia is responsible for the recent cyberattacks on Ukrainian government websites, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said: "Our specialists told me that yes, there is a very high probability that it originated from Russia. This is not the first or the last attack. If you have to compare which war is more dangerous, a cyberattack or a conventional war, I think it is hard to say. I think that missile and rocket shots and full-fledged aviation assaults are much more threatening. The consequences of war are more difficult than cyberattacks."
The President also noted that in defending its territorial integrity and sovereignty, Ukraine is not left alone and receives support from partner countries, including the United States. Without revealing details, Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that the military support from the administration of US President Joseph Biden is now stronger than before.
