German federal service of protection of Constitution released the report saying that Russia’s special services regularly land cyber-attacks trying to steal the data from their Western counterparts.

Most remarkably, one of the attacks took place last autumn. That was shortly before the release of the report, in which the Dutch Security Council said it was the Russian-made missile launcher Buk that downed the Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines in July 2014. The Russian side seems to have tried stealing the report. The German federal service of protection of Constitution never specified whether the attack was successful.

Previously, the Netherlands released the report on investigation of the MH7 downing. The first results of the investigation regarding the weapon involved in the accident will be released in autumn this year.
