Zakharova: the U.S. has almost never used the mechanism to report cyber attacks from Russia


MOSCOW, may 23. /TASS/. The mechanism responsible for the mutual information of the USA and Russia about possible kiberugrozy with these countries, almost never was used by Washington in the history of accusations of hacking attacks from Moscow. On Tuesday said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, the radio station “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.

“We have a special mechanism for informing each other about cyber attacks. If the US has concerns that there is a certain cyber threat from Russia, the mechanism is triggered and the data exchange is taking place. This was also the experience we have. But this mechanism is almost never used”, she explained.
