They have been taken off line. I don't think that is right.

Cyberattack hits websites of Ukraine defense ministry and armed forces

(CNN)A cyberattack hit the websites of Ukraine's defense ministry and armed forces, and the websites of two Ukrainian banks on Tuesday, according to Ukrainian government agencies' statements.

It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the hacking incident. "It's too early to attribute" responsibility, Victor Zhora, a deputy chairman at the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSSCIP) -- who is investigating the incident -- told CNN.

The incident comes as Russia has massed an estimated 150,000 troops close to Ukraine's border, according to United States President Joe Biden, and as US officials warn that a fresh Russian invasion could come at any time. Russia has denied it is planning to invade Ukraine.

Eric Trump vows to go after New York AG after her office helped convince Mazars to dump his dad's company

Hours after it was revealed that accounting firm Mazars was severing its relationship with the Trump Organization thanks in part to the work of New York Attorney General Leticia James, Eric Trump vowed to strike back.

Writing on Twitter, the second Trump son claimed that the Trump Organization would formally accuse James of unethical behavior during a court appearance this week.

"On Thursday, our team will be in front of a New York Judge outlining the blatantly unethical behavior of Tish James the NY Attorney General," Trump wrote. "There are 81 pages of videos, tweets & fundraising solicitations (some as recent as two weeks ago) in our lawsuit for the judge to see."
