Hacker attack on researchers: the Russian Ambassador rejects spying accusations

The Russian Ambassador to the UK has rejected allegations that the secret to give service to his country's hackers have access to information on a vaccine against the Coronavirus. Appropriate charges were levied last week, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. Andrei Kelin said in a Sunday broadcast Interview with the BBC, the allegations would "not make sense".

He did not know of the existence of hacking from the British media, said Kelin. It is impossible for computer hackers to a particular country.

The UK National centre for cyber security, declared on Thursday, Russian hackers spying on Corona-researchers. The group APT29, also known as the Cozy Bear, permanently try to gain access to academic and pharmaceutical research facilities, in which a vaccine against the novel Coronavirus is sought, said the center.

The findings came from a joint investigation with the United States and Canada. Cozy Bear is, according to the assessment of the three countries part of the Russian secret service. Russia has rejected the accusations. If in fact, research data has been captured, is unclear.

Raab wants to "reprehensible behaviour" of Russia brand

The British foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab explained, "Russian actors" have attempted, in the parliamentary election last year, to interfere, they would have reproduced, stolen government documents online. Kelin said in the Interview that his country had no interest in British domestic politics to interfere. To do this, as there was no reason, because Russia will strive for better relations with every government, no matter which party is in the country.
