He said this in an exclusive comment to Ukrinform on Friday, October 23.

"We are doing everything we can today. The National Cyber Security Coordination Center is operating at the National Security and Defense Council, and we have done everything in our power. Of course, we are waiting for certain procedures, but we are prepared," Danilov said.
