Ukrainian cyber resistance group plans to target Russian power grid, railways

A Ukrainian cyber warfare group plans to launch digital sabotage against Russian national critical infrastructures such as railways and the electrical grid, one of the group’s coordinators, Yegor Aushev, told Reuters. Aushev stated that he will plan attacks that would disrupt any infrastructure that helps to bring Russian troops, noting that ‘The goal is to make it impossible to bring these weapons to our country.’

Previously, Aushev posted a call for cybersecurity volunteers to defend Ukraine on 25 February, claiming he did so at the request of a senior Defense Ministry official. 

A Ukrainian defence attache in Washington declined to comment on Aushev’s group or its relationship with the defence ministry.
