Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation issued a statement Sunday accusing Russia of being behind a cyberattack that affected government and private computer networks as part of its “hybrid war” against the country.

Driving the news: Microsoft this weekend warned it had detected evidence of a “destructive malware operation” designed to look like ransomware and “render targeted devices inoperable.”

  • The malware operation had infected an unknown number of Ukrainian government agencies, as well as nonprofits and information technology organizations, Microsoft said.

Why it matters: The malware operation comes just days after diplomatic talks between the United States, European allies and Russia hit a dead end, augmenting fears of a potential invasion of Ukraine.

What they’re saying: “All the evidence points to the fact that Russia is behind the cyberattack,” the statement read.

  • “Moscow continues to wage a hybrid war and is actively building forces in the information and cyberspace.”
  • “The latest cyberattack is one of the manifestations of Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine, which has been going on since 2014.”
