Russian Federation 'targeted chemical weapons body'

Russian Federation 'targeted chemical weapons body'

The alleged interrupted wardriving was, we're told, launched after spear-phishing attacks thrown at chemical weapons watchdog failed to bear fruit.

The OPCW is an global chemical weapons watchdog based at The Hague in The Netherlands.

But the accusations deepen Moscow's isolation at a time when its diplomatic ties with the West have been downgraded over the poisoning of an ex-spy in England and it is under US and European Union sanctions over its actions in Ukraine. Co-operation in the Netherlands, but also with our worldwide intelligence partners.

While the motive behind the hacks involving anti-doping groups and organizations probing Russian poisonings were more clear-cut, the decision to target Westinghouse was less apparent.

The Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company, according to the US officials.

His remarks came after British and Australian officials said the Russian military intelligence unit GRU is behind a wave of global cyberattacks.

"We remain very alert about this", she said. All 298 people on board were killed. Over a period of months, Wikileaks consistently denies allegations that its sources are Russian.

In a statement, it said: "As is traditional, it is not backed by any proof and is another element in an anti-Russian campaign being conducted by the British government".

The United States has already accused the GRU of being behind cyberattacks before the 2016 presidential election and has sanctioned GRU officers - including its chief, Igor Korobov - for their alleged actions.

In a joint statement Theresa May and Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said: "We have, with the operations exposed today, further shone a light on the unacceptable cyber activities of the Russian military intelligence service, the GRU".

"The GRUs actions are reckless and indiscriminate: they try to undermine and interfere in elections in other countries", said British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

The hack and release of sports figures' medical data in 2016 and the downing of Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 also allegedly carry the GRU's fingerprints.

The US Justice Department on Thursday charged seven Russian intelligence officers with hacking anti-doping agencies and other organizations hours after Western officials leveled new accusations against Moscow's secretive GRU military spy agency.

What were the suspects doing in the Netherlands?

The four officers had entered the Netherlands on diplomatic passports, according to the Dutch defense ministry, which said the British intelligence service had worked with it to disrupt the operation.

Head of Dutch Military Intelligence and Security Service Onno Eichelsheim speaks at a news conference at The Hague, The Netherlands, on October 4, 2018.

Eichelsheim said the four agents were operating out of a Citroen vehicle parked outside the Marriott Hotel, which is next to the organisations headquarters on Johann de Wittlaan. It was revealed they had tried to destroy their equipment before being apprehended, possibly using a "size 12 boot", Whitehall officials said.

It was also reported that the two agents had been planning to travel on to the OPCW-registered laboratory in Spiez near Berne.

They never made it.

They were named in them as Alekski Morenets, described as a cyber operator, Evgenii Serebriakov, also a cyber operator, Oleg Soktnikov, described as humint (human intelligence) support and Alexey Minin, also humint support. If that wasn't successful, the hackers would conduct "on-site" or "close access" hacking operations, with trained GRU members travelling with sophisticated equipment to target their victims through Wi-Fi networks.

What was on their computer?

One of the seized laptops was also active in Brazil, Switzerland, and Malaysia.

Mr Wilson said: 'This disruption happened in April.

Britain's relations with Russian Federation have been in the deep freeze since the Salisbury attack which targeted former Kremlin agent Sergei Skripal. The athletes were specifically targeted because they spoke out against the Russian state-sponsored doping program.

United Kingdom investigative website Bellingcat last week claimed to have identified one of the two suspects as a highly decorated officer in the Russian military.
