Humeniuk says whether the situation with Kyivstar has affected communication with the military at the front

Backup communication options have been set up at the front

The situation with Kyivstar mobile operator has not affected communication with the military at the front. Natalia Humeniuk, head of the press center of the South military command, said that the army had thought through and set up backup communications.

She spoke about this on the air of the United News telethon. Humeniuk noted that the lesson of the blackout, when operators could not work due to a lack of power, was a warning. That is why the army has calculated these moments.

"In our case, the communication is well established. Communication is the nerve of troop control, so we do not feel the powerful wave of loss of control over the units that the enemy promised, because there are alternatives. And by the way, the lessons of the previous blackout, when operators could not work because of a lack of power, we have thought through and calculated backup communication options in advance. Therefore, we have not lost control of the units," summarized Humeniuk.

Earlier, Kyivstar President Oleksandr Komarov explained how the hackers managed to bypass the operator's cyber defense. To do this, they used a compromised account of one of the company's employees.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on December 12, Kyivstar's telephone and Internet services stopped working in Ukraine. The company confirmed that the large-scale failure was caused by a powerful hacker attack. At the same time, Kyivstar assured that its customers' personal data was safe. The Security Service of Ukraine opened a criminal case over the cyberattack on Kyivstar.
