KIEV, UKRAINE - OCTOBER 02: The golden domes of St. Sophia's Cathedral stand in the city center on October 02, 2019 in Kiev, Ukraine. Ukraine has found itself at the core of a political storm in U.S. politics since the release of a whistleblower's complaint suggesting U.S. President Donald Trump, at the expense of U.S. foreign policy, pressured Ukraine to investigate Trump's rival, Joe Biden, and Biden's son, Hunter. While the story is dominating U.S. news and political discourse in the United States, in Ukraine it is receiving limited attention, with lawmakers and the public more focused on domestic issues, including the ongoing war in Donbas.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainian officials say a cyberattack has left a number of government websites temporarily unavailable. It wasn’t immediately clear who was behind Friday’s cyberattack. But it comes amid heightened tensions with Russia and after talks between Moscow and the West failed to yield any significant progress this week. Russia has previously denied involvement in cyberattacks against Ukraine. A Ukrainian official says the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a number of other government agencies were temporarily down. Ukraine’s State Service of Communication and Information Protection says that no personal data was leaked.
