The attack, dubbed NotPetya, quickly spread worldwide, causing billions of dollars in damage across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. It was part of the Kremlins ongoing effort to destabilize Ukraine and demonstrates ever more clearly Russias involvement in the ongoing conflict. This was also a reckless and indiscriminate cyber-attack that will be met with international consequences.
