Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday with their entry “Stefania” , riding a wave of public support to claim an emotional victory that was welcomed by the country’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

On May 11, “Killnet” claimed responsibility for an attack on the websites of many Italian organizations, including the Senate, Italy’s upper house of parliament, and the National Health Institute (ISS). Many Western nations have heightened alert levels in anticipation of future cyber assaults on IT systems and infrastructure since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.
