Ukrainian Leader's Website Attacked, Russians Claim Responsibility

An AP newswire article, via CNews.Canoe.ca, reports that:

Hackers from several countries launched a massive attack and temporarily disabled the website of Ukraine's western-leaning President Viktor Yushchenko, his office said Tuesday. A Russian nationalist group claimed responsibility.

The attacks from servers in Russia, Britain, Kazakhstan, the United States, Israel and Ukraine began Sunday night and continued through Tuesday afternoon, the presidential press service told The Associated Press.

More than 18,000 attacks have been carried out, temporarily blocking access to the site. The web page could not be accessed Tuesday night.
