Kremlin website down amid cyberattacks

According to “Reuters”, the Russian presidential website, entitled “Kremlin.RU”, is no longer working, in the midst of cyber attacks.

The disruption of the Kremlin website comes as the Russian invasion of Ukraine entered its third day, amid widespread Western condemnations calling on Moscow to “stop the violence.”

The United States, along with its European allies, had announced the imposition of a package of sanctions on Russia, while Ukraine feels that the West has abandoned it and has not gone far in providing the required military support.

Meanwhile, a US defense official said on Saturday that Russian forces are growing increasingly frustrated with what the United States sees as continuing Ukrainian resistance.

“We know they haven’t made the progress they wanted to make, especially in the north. They were frustrated by what they saw as the desperate resistance,” the official added.

The official gave no evidence of what he said about the Russians’ faltering and inability to make progress in Ukraine, and then added emphatically, “It slowed their progress.”

For his part, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, on Saturday, that Ukraine had “derailed” the Russian attack plan, calling on the Russians to pressure Vladimir Putin to stop the war.

“We have withstood and succeeded in repelling the enemy’s attacks,” Zelensky said in a video clip on Facebook, explaining that “the fighting continues in many towns and regions of the country, but it is our army that controls Kiev and the main cities throughout the capital.”

“Every friend of Ukraine wants to join Ukraine to defend the country, please come, we will give you weapons,” Zelensky said in the video.
