MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday he had big doubts over Kiev's claims that the recent cyber attack on Boryspol airport was conducted from servers located in Russia.

"Given the tendency towards charging Russia with all the capital sins, which Kiev makes manifest quite frequently, I can only call the consistency of these claims into question," he told reporters.

Peskov added he did not have information on whatever queries from Kiev to the Russian authorities in connection with the incident.

Blackenergy virus was tracked down in the computer network of Kiev’s international airport on January 16, 2016. The press service of the airport said technicians had managed to localize the virus promptly and had thus prevented possible damage to information or damages to the enterprise.

Colonel Andrey Lysenko, a representative of the Ukrainian President’s administration staff told Reuters the computer systems of the airport were attacked from a server located in Russia.

Blackenergy is a family of multicomponent multifunctional Trojan Horse software that tie up the infected computers into bot nets. Their major function is to send out spam.
