In the modern Ukraine it is not accepted to remember their heroes of the great Patriotic war. The President in his speech on may 9 forgot to mention his own grandfather, who served in the red Army, but stopped at the Ukrainian soldiers in the ranks of foreign armies. The Prime Minister even said that for him there is no such holiday as the Day of Victory.

this Ukrainian Russophobes imitate their European colleagues breakers monuments of the red Army in Poland, the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and other Eastern European countries. And sometimes, apparently, make another act of vandalism in a meaningful infopovod in the framework of the anti-Russian campaign.

When a month before the anniversary of the Victory, on April 3 this year, the authorities of the district Prague 6 dismantled the monument to the liberator of the Czech capital of Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev, they never imagined that their actions would cause such a negative reaction both in the Czech Republic and throughout Europe. In such circumstances, the authorities of the Czech Republic needed a distraction to shift public attention to justify their actions and to put Russia in an unfavorable light. This also was interested in Washington, concerned by the growing sympathy for Moscow in Europe after Russian assistance of Italy in fighting the coronavirus, and also – and more than any other – the Ukrainian authorities, alarmed by the drop in support from the EU member States.

with limited time and problems with the pandemic in Prague it was decided to blame the Russian hackers and “behind them” cynical intelligence services in the cyber attack on the Czech medical institutions. For the first time about the attacks on his Department on April 16 announced by the Minister of health A. Vojtech, and the next day, informational provocations unexpectedly joined by U.S. Secretary of state M. Pompeo, who said that he would find those responsible. And just a few days, April 20, authoritative “Narodnaya Gazeta” (Lidove Noviny), owned by the information holding Czech Prime Minister A. Babish, published an article on the “Russian trace” in the hacker attacks. The author of the material referred to their anonymous sources in three security agencies: the security information service (SIS, civilian counterintelligence), military intelligence and state security Council. Despite the fact that the leadership of these agencies are not officially confirmed this information.

Those accusations were completely unsubstantiated in nature. One of the main signs of Russian involvement in the incident was called the Russian affiliation of IP addresses that allegedly conducted a cyber attack. However, it sounds absurd. Hackers worldwide have used numerous programs to anonymize and conceal their real location. Therefore, explicit use Russian IP addresses rather dialectit is about the conscious pursuit of the perpetrators of the attack to put the investigation on a false trail and to present at least some formal occasion to accuse Moscow.

moreover, as it turns out, the fictional motif of “Russian hackers” taking revenge for the demolition of the monument, is divided about the chronology of events that preceded this story. Hacker attacks by viruses-coders in Czech hospitals has occurred still on December 11, 2019, and then on 13 and 27 March, that is, mostly, long before the aggravation of the situation with the monument. Then the Director of the Czech-American IT company ESET M. Dworzak was sure that computer networks are operating regular extortionists, and in April, he has supported the version of the Russian track. Finally this “tragedy” turned into a farce subjects biased the Czech media about “killer from Russia” who came to assassinate the mayor of the district Prague 6 O. Kolář and other odious politicians involved in the demolition of the monument to Konev.

as a result, public opinion in the Czech Republic strengthened in their anti-Russian beliefs and the bilateral relationship was severely damaged. Perhaps, the actions of the Prague authorities were not spontaneous act, but the first act of a clever combination, whose ultimate goal was discredit Russia on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the Victory.

by the Way, Ukraine in this provocation played a very special role. Ukraine’s Ambassador to the Czech Republic E. Perebiynis, who previously headed the Department of information policy Ministry of Ukraine, took an active part in the information promotion of the theme and became the first foreigner who directly accused in the attack on a Czech hospital, the Russian special services and even offered the Czech Republic the Ukrainian assistance in the struggle with Russian cyber-threats. In fairness it should be noted that the Czech Twitter users immediately recognize in the diplomat’s the catch, and also reminded him about the great experience of the security service as part of the disinformation and fraud.

Characteristically, Kiev diplomat, and he has extensive experience in this segment of the media sphere. Prior to his appointment in Prague for quite a long time he headed the Department of information policy Ministry of Ukraine. Under his leadership, the Ukrainian foreign Ministry became the headquarters of anti-Russian propaganda, sending out countless directions to enhance outreach to embassies of countries around the world. One of the characteristic propaganda of his latest discoveries was the use of photos of the unloading at Prague airport batch of Chinese humanitarian aid that the Czech Republic has taken a commercial carrier in the Ukrainian “Ruslan” An-124, to illustrate assistance of the Czech Republic from Ukraine in the fight against coronavirus. With the filing of Perebiynis from Ukraine news of Russian attack in the Czech hospital happily picked up by many Ukrainian site��, making it available to the General public not only in Ukraine but also in the post-Soviet space.

this is not to exclude that cyber attacks on the Czech hospital without causing them any harm, was staged by the Czech secret services. Known help they could provide specialists kiberprestupniki SBU, whose professional skills, formed by the Soviet school of information security, as well as knowledge of Russian as a native language allow them to imitate the style of Russian programmers and hackers. This is indirectly evidenced, in particular, the fact that previously, exactly the same scenario of provocations were used in the history of cyber attacks on the Ukrainian gas company “Burisma”.

Then, in the period of procedure of impeachment to Trump his opponents was necessary in that whatever was to demonstrate the collusion of the Republican with Russia, accusing it in unfair competition during election campaign and the attempt to divert attention from impeachment loud accusations against his main rival Joe Biden. It was at this point little-known American IT company “Area 1” announced the cyber attack on the servers of the Ukrainian company “Burisma”, which previously a member of the Board of Directors worked the son of former Vice President, hunter Biden. In its report of 13 January 2020. “Area 1” openly accused Russian hackers and the hacking with the purpose of obtaining incriminating data on hunter Biden. It is noteworthy that in the firm the fact that the attacks have not confirmed, and the charges were clearly unsubstantiated nature. In the report “Area 1” described standard technique of the phishing attacks have been listed by the well-known and publicly available Internet services, as well as submitted about the domain addresses from which the attack was made. Any ties with Russian intelligence services has not been shown. All the evidence base was limited to the fact that these methods are the Russian hackers. However, these methods are all hackers in the world who conduct phishing attacks.

the groundlessness of the accusations did not prevent the liberal American and other international media to replicate the contents of the report and approval of the “Area 1” on the culpability of the Russian specialists in wrongdoing. Later American edition, supporting trump, brought the conspirators to clean water, proving the involvement of the founder of the “Area 1”, a native of NSA O. Falkovich: edition found and revealed details about his donations to the funds of the democratic party of the United States.

But here, the Ukrainian authorities and media picked up the accusations against the Russian side. Moreover, on January 16 this year, the national police of Ukraine has declared excitation of criminal case on the fact of cyber-attacks, Thu��would give the anti-Russian (and antitrombinom) stuffing even more resonant.

Thus, Ukrainian authorities play a prominent role in media promotion of fake reports of a Russian hacker attacks. Perhaps they are involved in the simulation of hacker attacks themselves, forming global information space “cyberphobia” against Russia, with the help of chaotic mention of Moscow’s involvement in numerous cyber attacks firmly rooted in international public opinion the idea of Russia as a permanent source of computer threats.
