Russia denies existence of cyber attack units

13 January 2017

Amid a growing scandal in the United States over Russian attempts to interfere in the 8 November presidential election, Moscow has denied the existence of both its ‘cyber corps’ or the assertion that any Russian government entity engages in attacks on foreign computer systems.

Statements to this effect were made to Russian news outlets on 10 January despite the recent release of detailed information on Moscow’s growing activities in this increasingly controversial area of warfare.

Alexei Volin, Russia’s deputy minister for communications, said his department was not involved in any financing of cyber warfare and knew of no such agency.
