Do you think that the mur­der of a top in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer in Kyiv and the cyberattac­k that both took place on June 27 are con­nected?

Kyiv Post - - Opinion - WITH ANAS­TA­SIA YAROVA:

Volodymyr Kanivets IT spe­cial­ist

“I think these two events are re­lated in the con­text of the on­go­ing war with Rus­sia, which all of these threats come from. Yet, no one can be de­ci­sively ac­cused un­til we have it all fig­ured out. The logic tells me that they will not give us peace and this is not the last threat to the coun­try.”

Yu­lia Ostroushko pho­tog­ra­pher

“It’s hard to tell as every­thing is re­lated in some way. But I think that the same peo­ple stand be­hind the (in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer Maksym) Shapo­valov’s mur­der and the cyberattac­k.”

Ha­lyna Boiko stu­dent

“It seems that there might be some con­nec­tion, but it is hard to tell if it was another coun­try’s fault, or our coun­try’s. In an in­for­ma­tion war, it is dif­fi­cult to rec­og­nize the truth. The ma­jor ques­tion for me is whether some­one in Ukraine is play­ing on the (en­emy’s) side.”

Ana­tolii Basarab re­tiree

“The govern­ment and banks say that they have been greatly af­fected by the cyberattac­k, but I think there wasn’t so much of an ac­tual threat, but rather a panic wave to de­press and scare the peo­ple. I think it was a great lie of the govern­ment. But the mur­der of Maksym Shapo­val is another thing. He is not the first of­fi­cer to be mur­dered. I do not be­lieve that Krem­lin is be­hind it, I think it is the work of big money.”

Natalia Shcherbako­va school teacher

“You can find the con­nec­tion any­where. The prob­lem is that all of the events in Ukraine are so com­pli­cated that al­most any­thing can be in­ter­preted as an in­side or out­side at­tack on those who work with the govern­ment and pro­tect its in­ter­ests. Al­though, a cyberattac­k is a well-planned thing. Who to blame? Well, ‘in­no­cent un­til proven guilty.’”
