Ruleaks.net publishes first leak, gets DDoSed

Via the Boing Boing Submitterator, BB reader Yenisei says,
Ruleaks.net, a website that publishes Russian translations of Wikileaks cables, ran its first own leak on January 18: pics of Putin's alleged $1bn palace on the Black Sea shore. In a few hours a heavy DdoS attack was launched against them and is still raging (also rospil.info, see link above) Coincidentally, Assange, a possible Nobel Peace nominee has just been invited to Russia by Wikileaks' (creepy) local representative Israel Shamir.
