The cyber department at Ukraine's SBU Security Service blocked in September 2020 the activities of several regional networks of Internet agitators who, in the run-up to Ukraine's local elections, tried to destabilize the situation in the country and called for the overthrow of the constitutional order and violation of territorial integrity, the SBU press center has reported.
