On the other hand, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo became the first US official to publicly attribute a massive piracy campaign to Russia, after revealing that large sectors of the federal government and the private sector were exposed to danger.
Pompeo said, in an interview with the “Mark Levin Show” program, recently, “This was a very big effort, and I think that we can now say very clearly that the Russians were the ones who participated in this activity.” This comes while a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin denied involvement. The Kremlin, and the Russian embassy, said in a statement, “The country does not carry out offensive operations in the cyber field.”
