Germany is proposing that the EU impose new sanctions on Russia for its cyberattack on the Bundestag

The attack took place five years ago. In Germany, they say they have enough evidence of Russia’s involvement.

Germany is proposing to the European Union to impose new sanctions against Russia for a large-scale cyber attack on the Bundestag in 2015. About it with reference to agency dpa writes DW .

At the same time, it is reported that a decision on this issue has not yet been made. If EU countries agree to impose sanctions, this will be the first time the EU has imposed sanctions on cyberattacks in 2017.

As a result of the cyber attack on the Bundestag server, hackers gained access to Angela Merkel’s e-mail data for the period from 2012 to 2015. The prosecutor’s office believes that Russian military intelligence is involved in the cyberattack. Chancellor Angela Merkel said that German investigators had enough evidence of this.

The Chancellor also called Russia’s actions not an accidental episode, but part of a hybrid war.

  • “Germany is proposing to the European Union to impose new sanctions against Russia for a large-scale cyber attack on the Bundestag in 2015.”

    Herr Merkel knows the EU will never impose new sanctions against Russia, it’s a cowards way of Germany getting out of sanctioning Russia directly. Instead, Germany will allow Nord Stream to be finished, as a way of punishing Russia.
