These GRU officers — and I have already learned intelligence — were the people who carried out a cyber attack on our elections,” he said, referring to a presentation last week by US authorities in absentia of the charges of 12 alleged members of the military intelligence of Russia in the framework of investigation into alleged foreign interference in the elections process in the United States in 2016.
