Ukraine to probe suspected Russian cyber attack on grid


Ukraine will investigate a suspected cyber attack on its power grid, the energy ministry said on Thursday, an incident the country’s secret service has blamed on Russia. A power company in western Ukraine, Prykarpattyaoblenergo, said on Dec. 23 that a swath of the area it serves had been left without energy, including the regional capital Ivano-Frankivsk, due to “interference” in the work of the system. Ukraine’s SBU state security service blamed Russia, which has not so far commented on the allegation.
