The Russian state institutions and banks are being targeted by powerful cyberattacks, which are carried out by hackers and other offenders, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said on Thursday.


"It is known that Russia is experiencing the most powerful cyberattacks. It is well known. Our state institutions, banks are under significant cyber-pressure exerted by the hackers' community and not only by them. But few care about it," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said.

The official went on to note that in case of the United States "it is the wiretap and countless scandals in the West related to the intrusion in the 'inner sanctum' by the US intelligence services, but it does not result in steps, which, as many believe, can be taken naturally against Russia on the global stage."


Grushko's statements follow the General Assembly's Third Committee's approval on Wednesday of the draft resolution introduced by Russia on countering cybercrime. A total of 88 countries voted in favour of the draft, while 55 voted against and 29 abstained.

On the same day, Head of Russian Service for Protection of State Secret Gen. Lt. Yury Kuznetsov said that the Russian Armed Forces were making efforts to secure a maximum protection of communications as a range of countries have increased their capabilities to commit cyberattacks.
