KIEV, December 27. /TASS/. Anonymous hackers have attacked the website of the Ukrainian Regional Development Ministry to have posted a hoax saying Russia was prepared to supply energy to Ukraine without prepayment, the ministry’s spokeswoman, Nadezhda Petruniak, has said.

“Apparently, the website was attacked by anonymous hackers. The ministry’s press-service has not published any information of this sort either on its own behalf, or on behalf of other press-services or officials,” she said.

Petruniak said the Regional Development Ministry did not have any information about energy supplies from third countries at its disposal and surely was not in the position to publish it, because it was a competence of a different ministry.

Earlier, the Regional Development Ministry’s Internet site said Russia had agreed to supply fuels to Ukraine without prepayment. The hoax has now been eliminated.
