Kremlin notes increased number of attacks on its website lately
The number of cyber attacks on the Kremlin website has risen lately, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
When asked whether it was possible to determine if there were indeed technical difficulties in operation of websites of the Kremlin and other state agencies, he said, "There were no difficulties. Everything was working fine for me."
At the same time, he confirmed that the number of attacks on the Kremlin website had increased lately.
"Yes, it grows all the time. We have mirrors activating there, there were a couple of DDoS attacks, the ones that cannot be carried out in Russia, no one is even capable of it here," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
On March 10, the Kremlin representatives could not confirm that websites of Russia’s state agencies experiences glitches but conceded that it was possible. He decided to check reporters’ claims that the Kremlin website could not be accessed at the time of his briefing. "No, I can open everything. I am checking the government [website] now, I am at the computer. No, everything works," he said. "I just tried it, and everything works for me."
