North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is supplying hi-tech cyber-security equipment to the Ukraine for defending its government networks from cyberattacks.

The 13th Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg said, "We are in the process of providing Ukraine with new equipment to some key government institutions."
