President: With Cyberattack, Russia Attacked our Sovereignty, National Security

"With the 2019 cyberattack on our official website, Russia attacked our sovereignty and national security," President Salome Zurabishvili said regarding the cyberattack which was carried out in October, paralyzing thousands of Georgian websites. 

Zurabishvili further assessed the cyberattack as a "blatant violation of international norms by Russia and a visible manifestation of a hybrid war against Georgia."

The Foreign Ministry of Georgia reported yesterday that the investigation conducted by the Georgian authorities, together with information gathered through cooperation with partners, established that the cyber-attack was planned and carried out on 28 October 2019 by the Main Division of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
