The Facts

  • Ukraine was the target of a cyber-attack on Friday, which knocked out several government websites.

  • The attack has been condemned by NATO and the US.

Anti-Russia narrative

This was most likely Russia threatening Ukraine, perhaps as a preamble to an imminent invasion.

Pro-Russia narrative

Ukraine has been quick to point the finger at Russia, as usual, but we still don't know who was behind the attack. There are indications it may have been Poles seeking revenge against the Ukrainian far-right.
