The European Parliament has experienced a cyber attack that started not long after it declared Russia to be a state sponsor of terrorism.
The Parliament on Wednesday passed a resolution that details Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine, weighs international definitions of terrorism, and - over nine pages and 4250 words - concludes that Russia is a state sponsor of terrorism.
The attack appears to have made part of the Parliament's website inoperable and made access impossible for a few hours.
A pro-Russian group called KILLNET appears to have claimed responsibility for the attack in this slightly NSFW Telegram post.
It is known to have used DDoS attacks on government websites - including trying to take out US government sites earlier this month.
