Germany has joined the British and the Dutch authorities in accusing Russia of instigating massive international cyber-attacks, Deutsche Wille reported.
‘The Federal Government also believes that Russian military intelligence of GRU is likely standing behind APT28 company. This assessment is based on very reliable own facts and sources,’ claimed the representative of the German Government as quoted by DW.
He noted that Berlin fully trusts the assessment of British and Dutch authorities regarding the cyber-attacks from the Russian side.
‘We sharply condemn such attacks on international organizations and institutions of our allies and call on Russia to meet its responsibility and cease such actions,’ Seibert claimed.
Earlier, the Netherlands announced the prevention of Russia’s cyber-attack at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and accused Russian Main Intelligence Directorate officers (GRU) of trying to get the information from the international investigation of the MH17 tragedy.
