Over 100 hackers tried to break into Russian president Vladimur Putin's new website in the first 24 hours after it went live.
A spokesman said that the site repelled the attacks, confirming claims by the Federal Agency for Government Communications and Information that the site is "hacker proof".
The Kremlin is unsure of the motivation behind the attacks, and had no knowledge of where they had come from. "It could be anyone, in any country," a spokesman told Reuters.
The president.kremlin.ru site is a personal vehicle for Putin, containing copies of his speeches, news items and photographs of the president at work and relaxing.
It took Russian website developers AYAXI 10 months to complete, and launched last week, clocking up 500,000 visitors in its first day.
