According to Google, the number of cyberattacks held by the russian federation in NATO countries in 2022 quadrupled compared to 2020. In Ukraine, the number of russian cyberattacks tripled during the same period.

Rubryka reports this with reference to Der Spiegel.

The increase in the number of attacks coincides with the beginning of a full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine and, according to Google, is a sign that cyber warfare will prevail in future conflicts.

According to the technology company (Google), attackers supported by the russian government have intensified their activities since 2021.

For reference:

On February 12, the websites of the North Atlantic Alliance became the object of an attack by russian hackers.

In addition, russian hackers previously carried out cyberattacks on dozens of hospitals in the Netherlands. The russian group Killnet, which cooperates with other hackers, is accountable for the attack.

It was noted earlier that the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, Mykhailo Fedorov, stated in his interview with the mass media that the world's first cyber war is going on between Ukraine and russia.
