Ukraine has been admitted to the NATO Cyber ​​Center

Ukraine became a member of the NATO Cyber ​​Defense Cooperation Center (CCDCOE). About that decided at the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The NATO Cybersecurity Center was established in 2008 on the initiative of the Estonian government. Then, unrest of the Russian-speaking population began in the country after the decision of the authorities to move the monumentSoviet soldier from the center to the outskirts of Tallinn. After that state institutions fell victim to hacker attacks, and the Estonian secret services suspected the Russian authorities of organizing them.

Ukraine applied to join the center later in 2021, but one of the EU countries blocked this decision, he said in February 2022 withOleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. Hungary exercised its veto power, the Ukrainian Pravda newspaper reported, citing a source.
