Investigations into this incident are ongoing. The UK provides support to Ukraine in many areas, including supporting the implementation of their cyber strategy. We enjoy close political cooperation on cyber security and provide programme support as part of this. The UK's recently announced National Cyber Strategy will be supported by £2.6 billion of fresh investment in cyber and legacy IT over the next three years, including a £114 million increase in the National Cyber Security Programme. This is in addition to investment in the National Cyber Force announced in the Spending Review 2020.
