The doctrine of preemptive cyber strikes that some countries are promoting poses a threat to global security, Russian Special Presidential Representative for International Information Security Cooperation Andrei Krutskikh said, addressing the Tenth International Meeting of High-Level Representatives on Security Issues in the Russian city of Ufa.
"The greatest danger is that online incidents can lead to actual full-scale wars," he noted.
