Experts believe that such an attack could be Moscow’s response to Berlin’s recent decision regarding tanks.
Russian hackers attacked German websites on Wednesday. According to the previous version, this may be Moscow’s response to the decision of the German government to supply Ukraine with Leopard 2 tanks. About this informs the German edition of the Tagesschau on Wednesday, January 25.
“A Russian hacker group attacked a number of German websites, apparently in response to Germany’s decision to supply tanks to Ukraine. Among other things, the online pages of the German government and the Hamburg airport were affected,” the report said.
Germany’s Federal Information Security Office (BSI) said hackers had launched so-called DDoS attacks on German websites.
“At the moment, some websites are unavailable,” the agency said.
The mass media also report that European countries are planning provide Ukraine with 80 Leopard tanks. German tanks will enter service with the Armed Forces by the end of March.
