15. February 2018 - 19:19

Today, the British Foreign Office announced that the UK government judges that the Russian Government and military were responsible for the destructive NotPetya cyber-attack. Foreign Minister Sven Mikser said that Estonia condemns Russia’s cyber attacks against Ukraine and calls on Russia to act responsibly and in accordance with international law in cyber space.

“The NotPetya cyber-attack which targeted Ukraine’s financial, energy and government sectors and undermined the sectors' resilience, demonstrated disrespect for Ukrainian sovereignty and caused significant economic losses in other countries too. It is very important for Estonia to maintain an open, stable and secure cyber space and for that, countries have to act responsibly and follow the rules of international cooperation and the norms of international law that apply in cyber space just like everywhere else,” emphasised Foreign Minister Mikser.
