Missile attack on 26 January: Air Force clarifies which sites Russia attacked with Kinzhal missiles.
Russian troops used two Kinzhal hypersonic missiles to target infrastructure facilities in Kyiv and Zaporizhzhia during a massive attack on 26 January.
Russians have a few of them, and they save them for hitting the ‘most important strategic targets’. This time, unfortunately, one of the ‘most critical strategic targets’ was the facility in Zaporizhzhia and one of the energy infrastructure facilities in Kyiv. This is their 'strategic target' to leave people in one of Kyiv’s districts without electricity.
Russian hackers try to hack cameras in Ukrainian residential complexes to collect intelligence.
Cybersecurity specialists of Ukraine's Security Service stopped Russian hackers' attempts to break into video surveillance cameras in Ukrainian residential complexes to collect intelligence about the situation in one of Ukraine's border oblasts.
The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) reports that through the Wi-Fi network of apartment buildings, hackers wanted to remotely connect to the video surveillance system in the territory of residential complexes, adjacent roads, etc. Thus, they planned to obtain a hidden channel for collecting information about the situation in the city.
In addition, hackers were interested in getting the residential addresses of Ukrainian law enforcement officers and data on the possible movement of military equipment.
The SSU was proactive and exposed the invaders. According to the investigation, a hacker group controlled by the Russian special services, which specializes in electronic hacking systems at infrastructure facilities, was involved in the cyberattack.
The issue of opening criminal proceedings under Art. Three hundred sixty-one of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (willful interference with the operation of computers, computer systems, and networks) is being resolved.
Measures are being taken to establish the circumstances of the crime and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Emergency power cuts were implemented in 10 oblasts due to Russian attacks.
Emergency power cuts were implemented in 10 oblasts of Ukraine on Friday, 27 January, because of the significant shortage in the energy system.
Ukrenergo said that electricity consumption is the same as it was on Thursday. However, another Russian missile attack damaged the generating capacities of power plants and the high-voltage network.
All oblasts have their consumption limits, but the dispatch centre has recorded their exceedance in 10 oblasts.
Due to this, emergency power cuts were implemented in Kharkiv, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Kirovohrad, Kyiv, Cherkasy, Zhytomyr, Volyn, Lviv, and Rivne oblasts. Ukrenergo does not rule out their implementation in other oblasts.
