EFFECT OF ATTACKS:
TYPE OF ATTACK:
"DDoS attacks against the popular independent website are conducted every time during outstanding political events in the country. Yesterday the web resource covered “the gas war” between Russia and Belarus. This news evoked great response of the visitors. We remind that the state propaganda covers the dispute with Russia one-sidedly, and Belarusians could find out the truth only on the web.
"It should be also noted that yesterday our website announced participation of the presidential candidate, the leader of 'European Belarus' civil campaign Andrei Sannikov, in the programs of Echo Moskvy and RTVI TV channel, dedicated to the topic “Situation in Belarus in the run-up to the presidential elections” We posted the audio recording of the program, and today the verbatim report of the program was to be placed on the website. After Andrei Sannikov announced on our website his intention to run for presidency, the news office of charter97.org was raided, searched, and computers were seized. And now a DDoS attack against the website is conducted." (1)
