Moscow Says US Cyberwar Against Russia Hypothetical Possibility

Peskov recalled that US President Donald Trump had already dismissed these allegations. TASS reported.

`If one assumes that some government agencies do this without informing the head of state. then of course this may indicate that cyberwar against Russia might be a hypothetical possibility.` Peskov stated.

According to the Kremlin spokesman. Russia has repeatedly said `that the vital areas of our economy are under continuous attacks from abroad`.

`We regret to say that.` Peskov noted. adding that the relevant Russian agencies continued to counter those attacks in order to prevent damage to the country’s economy.

Peskov also pointed out that `it was President [Vladimir] Putin who has on numerous occasions sought to initiate international cooperation to counter any sort of cyber crime`.

`Unfortunately. our American partners never responded to our initiatives.` he noted.

The New York Times said earlier. citing former and current US government officials. that the US `is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively`.

However. Trump slammed the New York Times report. saying on Twitter that it was `a virtual act of treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story. any story. even if bad for our country`.

The Pentagon did not respond to a TASS request to comment on the newspaper’s allegations.
