There was a major distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency resources, including the Sputnik website and newswire, the company’s IT department said Saturday.

The attack restricted access to desktop and mobile versions of the Sputnik website. IT specialists managed to ensure the timely release of news pieces to the newswire clients.

The agency’s press service said that IT specialists were working to establish the details of the attack that restricted access to desktop and mobile versions of the Sputnik website.

"Rossiya Segodnya websites and mailing services were unavailable to users for two hours starting at 7:00 p.m. Moscow time [16:00 GMT]," the press service said.

DDOS attacks are caused by a large number of Internet users or software simultaneously sending requests to a website until it exceeds its capacity to handle Internet traffic.

The Sputnik site was unavailable for almost two hours. We apologize to our readers.
