The Russian presidential press service has issued a warning for media regarding the use of messages obtained through e-mails.
"The Russian presidential press and information department asks media to show the utmost cautiousness in the use of information obtained by e-mails from the presidential press service through the Internet over manifestations of cybercrimes that have become more often recently," the press service said in a statement on Wednesday.
The presidential press service asked media to confirm information obtained by e-mail with the press service by phone.
It was reported that press secretary of the Russian prime minister Natalya Timakova was to refute a fake message on the resignation of RZD chief Vladimir Yakunin.
