The website is now operational for most users. “A powerful cyber-attack is underway on the [Kremlin] site,” a Kremlin spokeswoman said, adding they had been unable to discern who had carried out the attack. Specialists are now working to eliminate any disruption caused by the ongoing cyber-assault. An investigation has also been launched into the source of the hack attack. “A serious DDoS attack is currently underway, not only on the Kremlin site, but also a number of other web portals,” the Kremlin’s press service told Russian news agency ITAR-TASS, confirming this is the most powerful cyber-attack ever carried out on the presidential site. “Every possible measure is being taken to bring the site back online,” said the press service. “At present the site is working for most users.” MORE
