(TheRedAlertNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: According to multiple sources, Ukraine is now under a “massive” cyberattack and has declared a state of emergency.
In the past, Russia has repeatedly targeted Ukrain with cyberattacks. It has some of the best hackers in the world, both within the government and outside experts, who often align with the government to use cyber capabilities to hack the infrastructure of other countries.

Experts say that it is all but inevitable that Russia will launch a cyberattack on the United States in retaliation for the sanctions President Joe Biden imposed on Russia yesterday.
