Crimean Tartar event hit by cyber attack in LithuaniaComments
Lithuania’s parliamentary website came under cyber attack on Monday just as a special session of the World Congress of Crimean Tartars was meeting to discuss ‘mass violations of human rights in Occupied Crimea.’
The website was blocked partly preventing live coverage of discussions. Lithuanian police claim the attack came from abroad.
Officials of the Lithuanian parliament eventually managed to notify foreign users of alternative channels of broadcast.
