Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Germany revealed signs of Russian involvement in the cyber attack on computers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). It is reported by DW with reference to the Agency dpa.

"Our analysis has shown that for this attack was used the same infrastructure as for the other cyber attacksrelated to the campaign APT28, the aim of which two years ago was also the Bundestag", - said the head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Germany, Hans-Georg Maassen.

According to him, there are data that suggest that the Russian sources could be behind these attacks. But Russia rejects accusations of cyber attacks.

Remind that in late December last year, the OSCE stated about the hacker attack on the website.

Earlier US President-elect Donald Trump acknowledged the Russian involvement in the cyber attacks on US infrastructure, but does not believe that these attacks have affected the election results. This was stated in a special written statement released by the Trump’s office.
