“The government has corroborated the fact that many messages and operations that were seen via social networks come from Russian territory,” Defense Minister María Dolores de Cospedal emphasized. She also noted that although messages do come from Russian territory, there’s no way to know whether the Russian officials are involved.

The issue is to be brought up at the next European Union Foreign Affairs Council meeting and the Spanish government hopes the EU will take the issue seriously.
