"On the night into 5 February 2021, the official website of the National Guard of Russia (rosguard.gov.ru) faced a big DDoS attack over three hours. The sources of the negative impact were located abroad", the agency said in a statement.
This is not the first cyberattack that the agency has faced, the national guard noted, recalling the DDoS attacks it repelled on 23 and 31 January.
"It was established that the attacks were conducted from the territory of some EU nations. All the attempts to breach the operation of the website were successfully neutralised", the statement read on.
