The president's website undergoes an organized attack - we see a simulation of transitions and DDOS attacks from Yandex and VK resources, which creates artificial traffic to download and break down the servers of the presidential administration, a commentary of the Presidential Administration Deputy Head Dmytro Shymkiv says, published on the Facebook page of the presidential administration.
