For the first time, the European Union is going to put the special services of Russia, China, and North Korea on the вЂќblacklistвЂќ
After Germany suggested that the EU impose joint sanctions for a large-scale hacking attack by the GRU on the Bundestag and Angela Merkel, the EU came close to this goal.
As the correspondent Rikard Jozwiak reported on Twitter, at a meeting on July 22, the EU ambassadors agreed on the sanction's regime for cyber attacks by the GRU of the Russian Federation, as well as the Chinese and North Korean intelligence services.
Recall that last year, the European Union developed sanctions against foreign legal entities and individuals responsible for data leaks, theft of intellectual property, attacks on its infrastructure, and theft of classified information.
In addition, last week, a hacker group linked to the GRU was accused of attacking Biolabs that are developing coronavirus vaccines in the United States, Britain, and Canada. The Kremlin predictably denies this, despite the fact that London, Washington, and Ottawa have threatened Moscow with sanctions.
