Mass defacements at Ukrainian government sites are consistent with previous incidents as tensions in the region have risen. In connection with the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, “patriotic” hackers sympathetic to Russia blocked access to Georgian government websites and defaced a State Department website by juxtaposing images of the Georgian president with images of Adolf Hitler. In 2019, hackers from the Russian military intelligence agency GRU carried out mass defacements at Georgian government sites.
