Lavrov invites West to present facts Russia participates in cyberattacks

Russia surprised at West's obsession with cyber espionage

The claims Russia was involved in cyber espionage still remain unproved by at least a single fact, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 18.

"For some reason, when we are accused of anything - no facts are presented," he said. "I am saying once again: give us the facts." "Not a single fact addressed to Russia while there are facts, pointing to the other direction to the source of that illegal activity," Lavrov said.

To Russia remains absolutely unclear the West's obsession with the cyber espionage topic, and besides remains also a tendency to make only Moscow responsible for settlement of the crisis in Ukraine, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after his speech at the Munich Security Conference.

"As we mind the obsession of the Western counterparts with the position the Ukrainian crisis should be settled by Russia only, and their absolutely strange obsession with cybersecurity and cyber espionage, we are explaining our position as much as we can," he said in response to a request to comment on his impressions from the questions he received during the panel.
