ANKARA: Website of European Parliament was hit by cyberattack following vote on a resolution that designated Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism”.

“Availability of EU Parliament website is currently impacted from outside due to high levels of external network traffic,” Jaume Duch, Director General for Communication and spokesperson for European Parliament, wrote on Twitter.

“This traffic is related to DDOS attack (Distributed Denial of Service) event. EP teams are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.” European lawmakers passed resolution with a vote of 494-58, with 44 abstentions, earlier in day.

“In its war against Ukraine Russian military has intensified its strikes on civilian targets, including energy infrastructure, hospitals, medical facilities, schools and shelters violating international law and international humanitarian law in process,” according to resolution.
