Russia conducted over 200 cyberattacks on Ukraine

Russia has conducted hundreds of cyberattacks against Ukraine since the start of its assault on February 24, according to a report published by Microsoft on Wednesday.

The American tech giant said that six Moscow-backed actors carried out at least 237 cyber operations against Ukraine, with 40 of them marked as "destructive attacks" that destroyed files contained in systems operated by Ukrainian organizations. Around 40% of the attacks targeted Kiev's critical infrastructure, the report added.

"Given Russian threat actors have been mirroring and augmenting military actions, we believe cyberattacks will continue to escalate as the conflict rages," Microsoft's expert Tom Burt noted in the report.
