Russia’s special services plan to influence presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine through unauthorized interference in the CEC information infrastructure functioning. This was announced by Oleh Frolov, the Deputy Head of the SBU, at the briefing following the end of international cyber training under the auspices of the Service.
The training took place within the framework of the EU programme “Strengthening of Cybersecurity in Ukraine Before the Elections” with the support of the Estonian Centre of Eastern Partnership and the company CybExer Technologies which has great experience in such trainings. “Today, holding democratic and transparent elections in Ukraine is the top priority issue. The SBU efforts are aimed at preventing illegal actions by foreign special services, organizations or individuals”, said Oleh Frolov.
The leaders of the Central Election Commission, the State Special Communication Service and the representatives of foreign partners took part in the wrap-up meeting of the training. The organizers of the training highly appreciated the capabilities of Ukrainian experts to counter cyberthreats with the view to ensuring democratic rights of the citizens.
“The training proved particular and practical support of the European partners in strengthening Ukraine’s statehood and protection against most urgent threats of the hybrid aggression”, said the Deputy Head of the SBU.
