US carried out promised cyberattack? State websites of the Russian Federation are not available


On Wednesday, March 10, there was a large-scale failure in the work of the web resources of Russian state bodies. The websites of the President of the Russian Federation, Roskomnadzor, the Government, the State Duma, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Federation Council, the Investigative Committee and other government departments turned out to be inaccessible.


State provider of Internet services, Rostelecom, in turn, announced a kind of "global accident", promising to soon fix the collapsed sites.

At the same time, it is entirely possible to assume that Washington has implemented its threats to conduct a cyber attack on the state websites of the Russian Federation.

Как стало известно previously, according to the New York Times, the United States was planning cyberattacks on Russian government agencies in response to alleged Russian hacking (as claimed by US officials) using SolarWinds software.

Such measures may be the most effective method by which the United States can provide a framework and show opportunities for a response.

- said the adviser to the American president for national security Jake Sullivan.

American intelligence services confirmed the data on Russian network attacks in December last year. Biden, unlike Trump, directly speaks of the Kremlin's guilt in hacking against the United States. At the end of February, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki noted that the States would initiate "within weeks" a sanctioned response to Russian cyberattacks.

    So what ?! on an unsubstantiated accusation and a completed attack by hacker means, just keep silent or get rid of it ?!

      The "completed attack" turned out to be a jamb of Roskomnadzor itself due to its own "technologies" of slowing down, as well as due to the outstanding curvature of its employees.

    We are waiting for a response from the Kremlin hockey player, otherwise Lavrov has already promised to respond to the sanctions, but something went wrong with him again, however, he still promised to break off all relations with the EU, but here too ...

      Problems with access to a number of government and other sites are associated with malfunctions of routers used in the PJSC Rostelecom network. The company is taking the necessary measures to restore the network functionality

    These absurd "accusations of hacker attacks" by the Fashington "elitists" -American condos, Trump and Biden, so vividly reminded me of the old, from my village childhood, rural outcasts, who, straying into a pugnacious Caudle, out of boredom planned a victim for themselves and defend themselves , to seed the upcoming group beating, they "dug" to a person with completely unsubstantiated "presentations" like: "we know that you secretly empty our fishing traps in the pond at night and that is why there are so few fish in them" ... fool
    I think that these petty American "sheriffs" know very well that no "Russian hackers" or their "government sites" have "attacked" or "attacked" them - there will be no guaranteed "response" (well, perhaps, the timid N - the "concern" of the Russian Foreign Ministry, or simply - "complaints" of the Russian "press secretary" ??!), otherwise they would not behave with the Russian Federation so arrogantly and defiantly ?!

    on the other hand, the most athletic president of Ukraine, together with his minister, await with trepidation at least some sign of attention from across the sea ...

    “On Twitter, Roskomnadzor for the first time massively tested the technology to slow down traffic, which was introduced after the adoption of the law“ on the sovereign Internet. ”According to the BBC, at least 7 billion rubles ($ 95 million) were spent on it. As a result, a massive failure occurred in Runet. As a result, one and a half to two hours after the start of the slowdown of Twitter, there was a failure in the work of state sites - the Kremlin, the Russian government, the Investigative Committee and others. you will please. am

    The working days of Roskomnadzor specialists were overshadowed by a disruption in the work of government resources.
    How it was...
    Mikhalych, let's cut it! Cut it?
    Yes! And the hell does it all work then? Over there, the log sites come off ... wow, good, an infection ... Mikhalych, what wire did you cut? - Itit knows which one, there are thousands of them ... Maybe another one to cut? - Mikhalych, wait, they call me ... Yes, that's right, they cut it, what does it mean ... Lay the Internet in Yakutia? All life? What does not work? Ah, everything does not work ... Yes! Yes sir! While we grip our teeth ... I serve so to speak ...
    An hour later, thanks to the incredible efforts of Rostelecom specialists, the connection was restored.
    At this time, secret units for cyberattacks of the NSA FBI CIA SBU and those who joined them under the guise of students of MSU NSU SPBGU MIPT MEPhI MVTU, a combined regiment of Estonian intelligence officers and Polish hussars on stools for an hour unsuccessfully tried to hack the Kremlin website and find orders given to the Russians hackers ...

    What are you talking about ? Someone would be yes Ka would and the answer is in style. Saw Old THREE put on. The time when there will be a decision on the sanctions. Let's wait. It will take three weeks. Then continue. The main thing is not to forget about what you blurted out earlier. How Putin loves it. Promise with three boxes .. But you do not remember what you promised. Heh, heh ...

    And that they will carry out an attack on our sites, and then impose sanctions? This is overkill. We must answer. Although we play on their field, they have servers. In Soviet times, it was good, it was calm. Iron curtain. They cannot live normally. They are either afraid or wild. Average is not given

    And in the end it turned out that it was Roskomnadzor itself who messed up with its "slowdown" technologies.

    A tough "response" is needed to be discouraged. Let them know that for every provocation, there will be a furious response!

    100 poods. For how many years we have been hearing about everything that is our own, the best that we will have - our own operating system, and our processors ... etc. And in the end, the authorities need money, but for us tanks and missiles, they are like protecting us with all their might.

    Not impressed. To be honest, I didn’t even notice. And it seems that only the wrestlers were impressed by this, if at all. Judging by the comments.
