Microsoft said in a report prepared with Ukrainian cybersecurity officials and private sector companies: “The cyber component of Russia’s assault on Ukraine has been destructive and relentless.”

“There have been at least six Russian Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) actors and other unidentified threats conducting destructive attacks, espionage operations, or both, while Russian military forces attack the country by land, air, and sea,” the report stated.
