MOSCOW, August 17. /TASS/. Russia supports legally binding international charter under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) that will regulate norms for countries in cyberspace, Russian presidential envoy on issues of international cooperation in informational security, foreign ministry’s Ambassaor-at-Large Andrey Krutskikh told the Kommersant daily on Monday.
"Russia will ideally prefer a legally binding international convention under the UN auspices on ensuring global informational security," he said. "But we understand that several our Wetsern partners are not yet ready for such document."
Krutskikh noted the importance of developing common norms in cybersecurity. "In the course of our negotiations [United Nations Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security] in Beijing and in the White House, both sides reported that almost a million of cyberattacks per week occurs between the United States and China," the expert noted adding that the lack of common rules in the sphere leads to such figures.
The presidential envoy said that GGE prepared three reports with recommendations considering countries’ behavior in cyberspace. The last report will be presented at the UN General Assembly this year. The document envisages organizing a new expert group in 2016 that will continue discussions on the matter. "We hope that during these talks, a more detailed document will be developed which will later be submitted as a draft resolution to UN General Assembly," Krutskikh concluded.
