MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. Unidentified hackers attacked the website of the Donetsk News Agency during the live text broadcasting of a Q&A talk of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Head Alexander Zakharchenko with residents of the Zaporozhye Region, according to the agency’s statement obtained by TASS on Wednesday.
The hacker attack started immediately after posting Zakharchenko’s statement that the DPR authorities had prevented an attempt on the life of former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko during her recent visit to Donbass.
"The Internet resources of the Donetsk News Agency, which is providing a site today for the online conference of DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko with residents of Ukraine’s Zaporozhye Region have been hit by an intensive DDoS attack," the statement said.
Access to the website of the Donetsk News Agency and its page for receiving questions may be unavailable or impeded, the agency said.
Hacker attacks on the DPR Internet resources were also registered during the previous online conferences of the head of the DPR republic on April 20, May 5 and 25 and the website of the Donetsk News Agency has been hit by DDoS attacks more than 20 times.
In all the cases, IT specialists were able to promptly neutralize the consequences of hacker attacks.
