An internet service provider has reported service outages or huge amounts of traffic overwhelming their network, as Russia continues its hostile march through the country, reported the WSJ.
Internet provider Triolan stated there have been outages in its services in a number of areas including parts of the capital city Kyiv, but some services resumed in the capital city although minor damages still continue to hamper normal service.
The Internet Outage Detection and Analysis (IODA) project at the Georgia Institute of Technology showed partial outages in several parts of Ukraine.
The company connects the following locations Kharkiv and its surrounding region, Kyiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhia, Poltava, Odessa, Sumy, Rivne, Chuguiv, Brovary and Slobozhanske.
The Ukrainian government has warned its citizens telecoms services will face heavy traffic with interruptions “possible” said a spokesperson for the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection. It was advised to use SMS messaging if calls are not connecting.
Russia has been waging a cyber war as well as putting boots on the ground against Ukraine, with constant denial-of-service attacks against government, bank and digital services, according to Ukrainian cybersecurity experts.
