Accusing Russia of cyber attacks is another delusion under which there is no evidence, and which is reminiscent of the propaganda techniques of the cold war, said the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

«All the accusations of Russia by the Netherlands, UK and USA to support their in allegedly carrying out cyber attacks is another delusion, which otherwise as a large-scale provocation should not be considered. One goal is to maintain the myth about Russia as the aggressor country to solve its geopolitical and domestic challenges. No evidence again and, apparently, nobody is not going to show,» said Slutsky reporters.

«All this is painfully reminiscent of the propaganda techniques of the cold war, even Soviet times. Absolutely dead-end and destructive line,» — said the MP.

Ministry of defence of the Netherlands on 4 October said that the country’s intelligence agencies have prevented a hacker attack on the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW), which allegedly tried to carry out four citizens of Russia. As stated by the Minister ANK Bijleveld, suspects the Russians were expelled from the territory of the Netherlands 13 April, they had diplomatic passports.

NATO countries urged Russia «to stop reckless behavior,» the Alliance will react to this incident by increasing security measures, said Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The EU, in turn, expressed serious concern in connection with the attempted cyber-attacks and said he believes it is an aggressive act that undermines international law and international institutions said in a joint statement of the heads of the European Council, the EC and the diplomatic service of the EU. The EU summit will consider October 18 the situation of cyber security in connection with the attempted cyber attacks on the OPCW, said the President of the European Council Donald Tusk.

A source in the Russian foreign Ministry said that no hacker attacks by Russia to the OPCW and was not to be, because Moscow and so has access to information of the organization. Charges from the Netherlands he called «an example has come down to obscurantism policy of some Western countries». The Ministry also added that the Western «spy mania» is gaining momentum.

Later accusations against Russia made by the US and Canada. According to representatives of the authorities of these countries, seven «GRU» involved in hacking attacks on the electoral system of the US anti-doping laboratory, the nuclear company Westinghouse, stealing and posting money laundering with the use of cryptocurrency. While four of the suspects the American side of Russians – the same people who expelled the Netherlands. The U.S. justice Department said it hopes to attract «GRU officers» to justice on US soil and send them to jail.
