Lavrov about the allegations of cyber attacks: show us the facts



No facts about the alleged Russian interference by hacker attacks to the electoral process in the United States, France and Germany no, said the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov in his speech at the Munich security conference.

“Show us the facts,” said Lavrov.

As noted by the head of the foreign Ministry, he had not seen any fact of the tampering of the electoral system of the Russian hackers.

“For some reason, when we are being accused of something, no facts, no demands. Any fact I have not seen any on what we tried to hack some websites of the Democratic party, nor about what we supposedly did in France and Germany”, — said the Minister.

In addition, Lavrov said that Russia already long ago suggested the Western colleagues to deal with cyber security, however, serious discussion so far was not.

In this regard, he believes a positive signal the idea of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss cybersecurity in the Council Russia — NATO. In his opinion, this proposal is a sign of readiness to return to a specific work.
