Foreign Office increases pressure on Russia after Skripal poisoning
The British government has directly accused Russian military intelligence of being behind a spate of “reckless and indiscriminate cyber-attacks” carried out on the orders of Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin, including the hacking in 2016 of the US Democratic National Committee headquarters.
The claim is a precursor to the announcement of further UK intelligence revelations of Russian state involvement in the poisoning in Salisbury of Sergei Skripal, the Russian double agent.
The GRU’s actions are reckless and indiscriminate … they are even prepared to damage Russian companies and citizens
