Ukraine under cyberattack as US-Russia tensions rise

According to Ukraine's security service, members of the country's parliament, regardless of party affiliation, are being targeted in the attack.

The Ukrainian crisis has reached its next phase: cyberattacks.

Over the last two days, members of Ukraine's parliament, regardless of party affiliation, have seen their mobile communications blocked by equipment in Russia-controlled Crimea, Ukraine's security service confirmed on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

Ukraine is the site of an ongoing conflict with Russia. The US has stepped in, trying to limit Russia's infiltration into the country, but tensions seem to be on the rise.

According to the security service, the phone access has been blocked thanks to equipment installed "at the entrance to (telecom) Ukrtelecom in Crimea." Ukraine's security teams are now working on restoring service to the parliament members, though it's not clear when the blockade will be removed.
