Finland was hit by cyber-attacks and an airspace violation on Friday as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke to the Finnish parliament.

The country’s defense ministry tweeted earlier Friday that the website was under attack and would close until further notice.

A few hours later, after the issue was resolved, the department clarified that the cyber-attack was a denial-of-service attack, which aims to shut down a website so that users cannot access the information.

The attack also hit the websites of the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to the ministry’s Twitter.

The ministry said it was investigating the matter and the sites were up and running for hours later.

Just before the cyber attacks, Finland announced that a Russian plane may have violated the country’s airspace, Bloomberg reported.

Amid the violation of Finnish airspace and cyber-attacks, Zelensky spoke to Finland about the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“President Zelenskyy made a historic speech to parliament today,” the foreign ministry tweeted. “Finland strongly supports Ukraine in its efforts to defend freedom and democracy. #StandWithUkraine.”

Finland is rethinking its stance on NATO membership since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, much to Moscow’s anger.

Russia previously threatened Finland and Sweden if they tried to join the NATO alliance.

“Finland and Sweden should not base their security on harming the security of other countries and their accession to NATO could have adverse and some military and political consequences,” said Maria Zakharova, the spokesman for Russia’s foreign ministry. shortly after Russia attacked Ukraine.
