US, Britain accuse Russia of cyberattacks targeting Ukraine

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House has accused Russia of being responsible for cyberattacks targeting Ukraine’s defense ministry and major banks.

Britain joined the U.S. on Friday in blaming Russia. Neuberger said the attacks were of “limited impact” since Ukrainian officials were able to quickly get their networks back online, but it is possible that they were laying the groundwork for more destructive intrusions.
