The Russian Embassy in US says Russia 'never conducted and does not conduct any 'malicious' operations in cyberspace'

MOSCOW, Russia – Russia on Saturday, February 19, rejected the US allegations that it was responsible for cyberattacks on Ukrainian banking and government websites as baseless, the Russian embassy in the United States said on Twitter.

“We categorically reject these baseless statements of the administration and note that Russia has nothing to do with the mentioned events and in principle has never conducted and does not conduct any ‘malicious’ operations in cyberspace,” it said.

US Deputy National Security Advisor Anne Neuberger said on Friday, February 18, that Russian military intelligence was behind the recent spate of distributed denial of service attacks that briefly knocked Ukrainian banking and government websites offline. – Rappler.com
