Ukraine’s satellite internet was shut off by Russia.

The United States, Britain, Canada, Estonia, and the European Union declared on Tuesday that Russia was behind a huge assault on a satellite internet network that knocked down tens of thousands of modems.

The late-February cyberattack on Viasat’s KA-SAT network came as Russian tanks entered Ukraine. “To undermine Ukrainian command and control throughout the assault,” claimed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

The EU Council stated the breach triggered “indiscriminate communication failures” in Ukraine and other EU member states.

The Viasat outage remains the most conspicuous cyberattack since Russia invaded Ukraine, in part because the intrusion affected satellite internet subscribers throughout Europe and had to be manually restored.

“It wasn’t like you unplug them and reset them and they come back,” NSA Director of Cybersecurity Rob Joyce told Reuters on the margins of a cybersecurity conference on Tuesday.
