KIEV, July 14. /TASS/. Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote Tuesday on Twitter he has regained control of his page on the microblogging website that was earlier hacked by the Right Sector extremist organization banned in Russia.
"I have restored control," Avakov said.
Earlier, the minister’s Twitter page came under a hacker attack on the part of the Right Sector. "Avakov’s Twitter is under the control of the Right Sector," the extremists said on the minister’s Twitter page.
Before that post, Avakov’s microblog had a report that "the Interior Ministry is preparing a package of documents to the Verkhovna Rada [parliament] to strip [Right Sector leader] Dmytro Yarosh of deputy immunity."
The post, just as posts published in the microblog by the Right Sector, are currently absent from the page. The statement about Yarosh also appeared today on Avakov’s personal website but the resource does not open now.
The administration of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko also said its Twitter page had been hacked. Before that, the administration’s microblog featured a post that the head of state "gave instructions to give a legal evaluation of the unauthorized withdrawal of Right Sector units from the military operation zone." The operation of the president’s microblog has been restored by now.
On Monday, July 13, Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council announced its Twitter page was hacked by Right Sector supporters.
