Russian Federation behind global cyber attack: USA and UK

Russian Federation behind global cyber attack: USA and UK

The alert is not related to the suspected chemical weapons attack in a town in Syria that prompted a US -led military strike over the weekend targeting facilities of the Russian-backed Syrian government, Joyce said.

The British delegation to the OPCW said Russian Federation and Syria had not yet granted inspectors access to the site of the attack.

The air defense forces of Syria and Russian Federation is not impressed, none of the more than 100 shells fired by the U.S., Britain and France on the production facilities of the chemical substances in Syria. "It is our concern that they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation".

Western countries accused Moscow on Monday of preventing inspectors from reaching the site of a suspected poison gas attack in Syria and said Russians or Syrians may have tampered with evidence on the ground.

Meanwhile the UK's envoy to the OPCW, Peter Wilson, reportedly said there is "reliable intelligence" to support claims that Syria was behind the attack. "Russia and Syria must cooperate".

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has said Moscow will not delay its response to new U.S. sanctions, according to Russian state news agency RIA.

Moscow blamed the delay on the Western air strikes.

A joint United Nations-OPCW mission concluded that troops under President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons several times in recent years, including a sarin attack a year ago in the town of Khan Sheikhoun that killed almost 100 people.

Peskov also said that US-led air strikes carried out in Syria over the weekend were the "latest violation of global law" and said they were an act of aggression.

The Syrian government regained full control of Douma on Saturday following a surrender deal with the rebels who had controlled the town just east of Damascus.

Syrian media, as well as Russian and Syrian officials, have sought to downplay the impact of the joint air strikes.

Her office said she planned to tell them the strikes were "in Britain's national interest" and were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks.
