Kremlin set to ‘run out of steam’ giving Kyiv chance to strike, says MI6 chief | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack


Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has reassured citizens that he is well after what he said was a fake news report about his health by Russian hackers.

Mr Zelensky, 44, made his remarks on the same day as the Kremlin dismissed what it said were false reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin was unwell.

He posted a video on Instagram from his office on Thursday after a Ukrainian media company said hackers had broadcast a false report about Zelensky’s health on one of its radio stations following a cyber attack.

“Today, Russia launched more fake news that the (Ukrainian) state is not controlled by President Zelensky as he is in hospital, or rather, in intensive care because of a ‘serious health condition’,” Mr Zelensky said.

“So, here I am in my office, and I have never felt as good as now,” he said, sitting as a desk and wearing a khaki t-shirt. 

In a veiled nod to Putin’s advancing years, he added: “And with all due respect to old age, 44 is not (almost) 70.”
