According to Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of the GCHQ eavesdropping intelligence agency called on British organisations to “bolster their online defences” following the developments.

“While the NCSC is not aware of any current specific threats to UK organisations in relation to events in and around Ukraine, there has been a historical pattern of cyber attacks on Ukraine with international consequences,” NCSC said in a statement.

Last week, Ukrainian banking and government websites were briefly knocked offline by a spate of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks which the United States and Britain said were carried out by Russian military hackers. Russia rejected the allegations.
