    Ukraine’s security services shut down on Wednesday several websites allegedly engaged in “acts of information aggression aimed at undermining the Ukrainian constitution”, a senior national security service official said.

    “The Ukrainian Security Service…banned a number of Internet websites which were engaged in acts of information aggression on the part of the Russian Federation and undermined the constitution and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Markian Lubkivskyi wrote on his Facebook account.

    The banned websites were registered with and functioned with technical support from NIC.UA and Service Online affiliated Ukrainian societies.

    Acting on a court order, USS operatives confiscated the servers used by the banned websites.
