Ukraine became the front line of a range of attacks against space systems and cyberattacks, following the Russian invasion in February 2022. Space systems were the targets of both electronic attacks and cyberattacks.1 One such cyberattack had significant impact as tens of thousands of internet customers across Europe, including emergency services in France and wind turbines in Germany, were unable to communicate. It was reported that ‘more than 40 per cent of the destructive cyberattacks [involving Ukraine] were aimed at organizations in critical infrastructure sectors that could have negative second-order effects on the government, military, economy, and people’.2 With some of the attacks blurring the line between cybercrime and cyberwarfare and impacting both military and civilian sectors across state borders, the war in Ukraine underscores the issues that must be addressed by international space and cyber governance.3
