Russia reflected every day thousands of cyber attacks from the West. This is the official representative of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, said in an interview with the BBC, which will be released in the framework of the programme HardTalk on January 21. Extracts from it quoted by TASS.
“Every day there are hundreds and thousands of cyber attacks on the digital system of the Russian Federation. Some of them are carried out from the territory of the United States. Dozens of go with the territory of Germany. Dozens of the UK”, — said the press Secretary of the Russian President.
However, he expressed the opinion that these attacks are not sanctioned by the leadership of the Western States. “We think it’s irrelevant to governments, although we have evidence that in some very aggressive attacks on our banks and our official web site are some foreign intelligence services,” — said Peskov.
He also again rejected similar accusations against Russia. “Neither the Russian government nor the Kremlin or President Putin or military intelligence do not stand behind these attacks, unless of course they really were,” — said the official representative of the Kremlin.
Also in an interview with the BBC, Peskov said that Moscow needs good relations with Washington to jointly address critical issues and answered the question of the nomination of Vladimir Putin for another presidential term.
January 6 was published declassified version of the report prepared by the CIA, FBI and NSA, in which he argued that Putin personally ordered to organize a campaign to influence the political process in the United States and to discredit the candidate in presidents from Democratic party Hillary Clinton to win the Republican Donald trump.
Himself President-elect after cyberattacks devoted to meetings with representatives of the intelligence recognized that different countries, including Russia and China carried out cyber attacks on government agencies of the United States, but expressed confidence that hackers on the election result not affected. Statements about Moscow’s attempts to influence the outcome of elections in the U.S. he called a “witch hunt”.
Moscow all accusations of this kind consistently rejects.
