MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The Kremlin says allegations that hacker attacks on websites of various organizations abroad might originate from Russia are "absurd and ungrounded," Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"These are absolutely ungrounded allegations, and very often absurd," he told journalists.
He said efforts against cybercrime "require international cooperation." "Regrettably, our partners not always demonstrate such constructive approach," he underscored.
He reminded that the Russian president’s website had recently been attacked by hackers. "It means that we are targets of hacker attacks as everybody else and it proves that no one can be guaranteed from them," he said.
Earlier, Peskov said a massive cyberattack targeted the Russian president’s website on September 13, the Unified Day of Voting in Russia. "I am sure specialists know where the attack came from," he told journalists back ten.
Peskov also recalled that "the curious thing" was that Central Election Commission chief Vladimir Churov told about attempts to hack into the electoral commission's website, and at about the same time, "a very powerful attack" was underway on the Russian president’s website.
"Security systems managed to cope with the attack although it wasn't easy," the spokesman said. "But the attack was quite powerful," he repeated.
