Cyberwar: Europe points the finger at Russia

Cyberwar: Europe points the finger at Russia
Igor Kostyukov and Dmitry Badin: these are the names of those responsible for the cyberattacks suffered by Germany in 2015. That the origin was Russian was known since the beginning of 2019, when the first results of the investigations came to the surface, telling of data stolen by hundreds of politicians, including Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Cyberwar: the EU accuses Russia

The responsibility therefore falls directly into the hands of Vladimir Putin, opening a political front that was already widely known and that even only recently he had taken Alekei Navalnyj to take refuge in Germany after being poisoned. A front that tells of a dense cold war in which the notorious "GTsSS", a group also known as APT28, Fancy Bear, Strontium, is the protagonist on the Russian front: these are the names that have risen to the news in some of the main cases of cyberattacks in recent years .

The European response from a legal point of view, however, has its hands tied at the moment, being able to simply freeze the assets of the two responsible persons and forbid their entry into Europe. The US presidential race tackles the same issue in the same hours, with Biden pointing the finger at Trump and his ill-concealed laxity towards an ambiguous Putin: in all likelihood, Biden's election could say a lot in this regard, with direct consequences also in terms of cyberwar and “digital” tensions on the border between Europe and Russia.
