Microsoft Ukraine has disclaimed responsibility for the shut-down of Ukranian file-sharing site Ex.ua, which that country’s government has shuttered for copyright infringement.

The shut-down has triggered the usual round of attacks on government Websites in that country.

According to the Kyiv Post, Ukrania’s interior ministry had warned the site that it was in danger of a shutdown. Criminal charges against the site’s administrators have been in train since last July.

While there have been many reports naming Microsoft as one of the complainants against the site, the company has reportedly denied any involvement, in spite of the company being named by interior ministry deputy head Ruslan Pakhomov along with Adobe, Graphisoft and Channel 1+1.

The ministry claims that 200 servers holding 6,000 TB of files have been seized. Employees of the company have been questioned but not detained.

Reuters reports that both the presidential Website and that of the interior ministry have been shut down by attacks. ®
