MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Russia will seek liability for those involved in cyber aggression against the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

The sources of the attacks will be detected, the attackers will inevitably bear responsibility for their deeds, in accordance with the requirements of the law," the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry noted that "an army of cyber mercenaries, which pursue concrete combat tasks that border on terrorism, is waging a war against Russia."
"An unprecedented sway of these actions as well as their coordinated nature, definitely point to the fact that Ukrainian special detachments of information and technical influence, trained besides the United States by other NATO member states, wage the cyber war against us involving on a broader scale of anonymous hackers and provocateurs, who follow orders of Western coordinators supporting the Kiev regime," the statement reads.
"We are faced, in fact, with the war waged by cyber-mercenaries, who have concrete warfare tasks, which often border on open terrorism," the statement added.
The ministry noted that special agencies are effectively resisting cyberattacks, "giving them a powerful rebuff."

Efforts to promote relevant initiatives will be intensified at international platforms, primarily at the UN. Work will continue to strengthen the legal protection of Russian individuals and legal entities from malicious cyber influence from the outside," the ministry said.
