US, UK Accusations of Russian Hacking ’Groundless’ - Kremlin Says
Local Editor

The Kremlin dismissed as "groundless" British and American warnings that Russian state-sponsored hackers were threatening their crucial computer networks.

"We don't know what these new accusations are based on," according to Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov. 

"As before, neither our American nor our British colleagues have bothered to search for arguments, even weak ones," he added during a regular briefing. 

Peskov further noted that the claims were "groundless" and "unjustified". 

Washington and London said in a joint statement Monday that Russia's hacking operation aimed "to support espionage, extract intellectual property, maintain persistent access to victim networks and potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations". 

The US Department of Homeland Security claimed the hacking was part of a broad operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe, which DHS says comprises concerting cyber-attacks by Moscow's civilian and military intelligence agencies.

The announcement came in an unprecedented joint alert that underscored closer cooperation between Western governments fighting what they say is an ongoing, multi-faceted hacking and online disinformation campaign by Moscow.
