PRESS RELEASES

12.09.2011

On cyberattacks on the Russian Embassy website

Between 9 and 12 September 2011 the website of the Russian Embassy in London www.rusemb.org.uk repeatedly became unreachable. The nature of the disruptions, as well as our further communication with the hosting provider provided evidence of a DDoS attack against the server where the website is hosted.
The Embassy responded by creating a “mirror” website www.rusemborguk.ru to satisfy the demand for information on the eve of PM David Cameron’s visit to Moscow. The website has since then been fully restored. The Embassy requested the British authorities to investigate the incident.
