MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. Russia treats any cyberattacks as crimes, Telecom Minister Nikolai Nikiforov told reporters on the sidelines of Gaidar Forum.
"Firstly, any hacker attacks, cracks and other cybercrimes are crimes in the first instance and therefore we treat them accordingly," Nikiforov said.
The Telecom Ministry undertook a host of measures to combat cyberthreats last year, the minister said.
"We as the state are against that; we regard them as a crime, in no way support and condemn them," Nikiforov said.
"The only positive moment I see that it improves the image of quality of IT specialists training in Russia," the minister said responding to the question on US allegations against Russia regarding cyber-attacks and influence on results of elections in the United States.
