[キーウ／ロンドン ２２日 ロイター] – On the 22nd, Yuri Shchkhori, director of the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection (SSSCIP), which is in charge of cyber defense in Ukraine, announced that he has been working with Russia’s military intelligence agency, the Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation (GRU) and the Russian Federal Security Service (Russian Federal Security Service). The FSB has said it is using hackers to target computer systems belonging to Ukrainian authorities in an effort to identify and obtain evidence related to suspected Russian war crimes.
Schihori said Russian hacker attacks “have shifted in direction from focusing on energy facilities to law enforcement agencies, which were previously less targeted.” “This shift toward courts, prosecutors, and law enforcement indicates that hackers are gathering evidence regarding Russian war crimes in Ukraine.”
