A cyber attack on energetics objects in Ukraine, which caused disruptions in energy supply, was carried out by Russia, stated Deputy Secretary of energy in the US Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, informed CNN.

She also informed that she is not at liberty to discuss details of the cyberattack.

Sherwood-Randall’s statement counters the position of most American officials claiming that the US has not enough evidence to accuse Russia of cyber attacks on Ukrainian energetics objects.

Sherwood-Randall announced her conclusions based on the work of US experts, who visited Ukraine to study the cyber attacks.
