A new Ukrainian religious website owned by Odesa's Ukrainian Orthodox
Church has been subjected to a denial of service attack exactly one month
after going online.
Hackers specifically targetted the new daily parish news pages at
. Hosting company web server errors have been ruled out as the possible cause of the problem.
Local Church leader, Archbishop Paissy, is keeping an open mind on the matter but does not rule out the possibility of foul play from the side of Moscow's Orthodox Church. Within one week of the Ukrainian Orthodox website going online, a newly ordained Ukrainian priest was savagely hacked in the head by Russian Church assailants attempting to stake their claim to a local village chapel. ( See: http://odesa.uanews.tv/savytskiy-e.php ).
If the problem continues Odesa's Ukrainian Orthodox Church will move to a new website. The website's denial of service attack also coincides with FM signal jamming of Radio Kontynent in Kyiv on the same day. (See http://www.uanews.tv/news/wire/04/03/040302-02.htm ) The problem is perceived as part of a nationwide clampdown on the flow of Ukrainian and opposition information.
