The Russian defense ministry said it had been hit by a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack launched from abroad after its website was knocked offline on Friday.

"...The source of the attack on the ... defense ministry's website is located outside the Russian Federation," the ministry was quoted as saying by state news agency TASS.

The website was unavailable for at least an hour, but was accessible again shortly after 09:30 GMT.
