Germany Points to Russia for Recent Cyber Attack

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Sunday that the German government is suspecting Moscow to be behind the recent cyber attack on the Foreign Ministry.

Maas cited a number of “problematic” actions taken by Russia aside from the cyber attack, such as delaying the implementation of a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, the poison gas attack in Britain, its support of the Syrian government, and its efforts to influence Western elections.

Maas added that they reached a point where they had to assume the attacks had come from Russia, and said that they were condemning those negative contributions.
