The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) says that the attacks aim provoke anxiety and undermine Ukrainian society’s confidence in the state’s ability to defend its citizens.
“Ukraine is facing attempts to systemically sow panic, spread fake information and distort the real state of affairs. All this combined is nothing more than another massive wave of hybrid warfare,” the SSU said.
The SSU has responded to a number of attempts linked to hostile intelligence agencies and bot farms targeting both social networks and mass media.
“The SSU is seeing such manifestations of hybrid warfare in social networks, some mass media, in the spread of narratives of the aggressor state by certain politicians, etc. The SSU is not just observing these, but also actively counteracting to them,” the Ukrainian Security Service added.
“This is reflected in the NSDC decisions, number of neutralized cyberattacks, dismantling of numerous bot farms, exposing agent networks of hostile intelligence services and preventing sabotage and terrorist attacks.”
