Russia on Tuesday accused the United States of leading a massive campaign of “cyber aggression” behind hundreds of thousands of malicious attacks per day while Russia deploys troops in Ukraine.
The State Department said media, critical infrastructure and life support systems had been attacked, with the unprecedented scale pointing to US- and NATO-trained special forces and hackers acting on behalf of Kiev’s Western sponsors.
“The sources of the attacks will be identified and the attackers will inevitably be held accountable for their actions in accordance with the law,” the Russian statement said.
