US Air Force to Continue Providing Cyber Support as Russia-Ukraine War Continues
Lt. Gen. Kevin Kennedy, the commander of the 16th Air Force, told reporters that his organization is adhering to previously established readiness plans to ensure that cyber warriors will have the necessary tools and know-how to support the U.S. European Command in combatting threats. He added that the cyber support that Air Forces Cyber offers extends to the service’s strategic, transportation and space commands.
Kennedy’s statements were issued as the war between Kyiv and Moscow entered its sixth month, The Record reported.
The three-star general also shared that U.S. forces spend a significant amount of time on the cyber domain because that is where adversaries are doing their work. Kennedy is confident that the Air Force will not exhaust its tactics, techniques and procedures as the conflict in the Eastern European region continues.
According to the Air Forces Cyber chief, the military branch’s cyber TTPs help expose the enemy’s behaviors and minimize their capabilities in cyberspace.
Forces from the U.S. and other countries have been providing support to help Ukraine combat Russian forces. Aid comes in different forms, including weapons supply, cyber support, financial aid and humanitarian aid.
