Oleksandr Turchynov: Parliamentarians have become accomplices in cybercrimes against their own country

Parliamentarians have become accomplices in cybercrimes against their own country. This was stated by Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov in his comment.

According to him, many enterprises and organizations have not yet fully recovered from the powerful cyberattack of June 27. "Countering cyberwar, which is part of the hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation against our country, requires the mobilization of both relevant state structures and significant financial and intellectual resources", -  Oleksandr Turchynov said adding that cybernetic and information threats cannot be effectively countered without legislative regulation of many issues in this sphere.

The NSDC Secretary added that on Tuesday, the draft law "On countering the threats to national security in the information sphere" was not even put on the agenda. "Deputies who work several days a month are probably very tired and next week they will go on a regular several-months' vacation. Yesterday they did not even manage to put on the agenda the law which is of key importance for cyberdefense of the state", - he said adding that those deputies "who did not vote for the protection of their own country, covering their destructive actions and business interests with empty populism and demagogy, are accomplices in cyberagression against Ukraine".

According to him, starting from next week until mid-September parliamentarians plan to go on holidays "leaving the country open for new cyberattacks and information provocations".

"By the way, - Mr. Turchynov added, - deputies also have no time to consider in the second reading the Law 2126a "On the basic principles of ensuring cybersecurity", which has been in the Verkhovna Rada for several months already".

Moreover, the NSDC Secretary noticed that the majority "formed from the Opoblock and populist factions of the Parliament" also refused to support the law that was supposed to put a filter for obtaining Ukrainian international biometric passports by collaborators and agents of Russian secret services, who are disguising as patriotic citizens in the temporarily occupied territories of the Crimea and Donbas.
