Russian hackers were able to get into a server belonging to Burisma, the Ukrainian company at the center of President Trump's impeachment, security experts told The New York Times. The security firm Area 1, which first detected the hacking on New Year's Eve, told the Times that Russian efforts began in early November, when the impeachment was all over the news. The hackers are from a Russian military intelligence unit formerly known as the GRU. It is unclear what the hackers were looking for, or what they found. Hunter Biden once sat on the board of Burisma, and during a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump asked him to investigate the Bidens and Burisma, a request that ultimately led to his impeachment.
