Rosneft says hit by "powerful" cyber attack

New cyberattack spreads across Europe, hits Rosneft, Maersk

Apart from Rosneft and Bashneft, Ukrainian companies Zaporozhyeoblenergo, Dneproenergo and Dnipro Electricity System were also among the victims of the cyberattacks, according to Group-IB.

More so, Russia's top oil producer Rosneft said a large-scale cyber attack hit its servers and computer systems at some banks and the main airport in neighboring Ukraine were also disrupted.

Access to Rosneft and its subsidiary Bashneft's websites is unavailable for the moment as a result of the attack.

Bailiffs also said Sistema can not receive any income from 31.76 percent of MTS, 90.47 percent of Bashkirian Power Grid company and any of its wholly-owned Medsi medical clinics chain.

A court on Tuesday announced a halt in the case between Rosneft and Sistema - owned by tycoon Vladimir Yevtushenkov - until July 12.




But on Monday, Sistema said it had received notice of an enforcement action from the Moscow Directorate of the Federal Bailiffs Service and a copy of a court order from the Republic of Bashkortostan Arbitration Court.

Sistema declined to comment on the estimates.

Russia's biggest mobile operator MTS said on Monday a court decision to "arrest" a number of its shares owned by business conglomerate Sistema would not affect its operations.

"This situation does not impact operations with MTS shares, and the rights to receive dividends on MTS shares owned by other shareholders", MTS said in a separate statement.

Shares in Sistema slumped by as much as 17 percent early on Tuesday but later pared some losses to trade about 6 percent lower by 1430 GMT.
