“Such statements are absurd and divorced from the real state of affairs.

Our country has never engaged in cyber aggression.

This contradicts the principled position of Russia,” the diplomatic mission said in a statement.

The embassy noted the reluctance of the State Department to admit that one of the main sources of global cyber threats is the United States, since it is from there that most computer attacks are carried out on critical infrastructure in other countries, including Russia.

“Over the past six months alone, our competent departments have sent about 500 notifications of malicious activity from the jurisdiction of the United States,” the diplomats stressed.

The diplomatic mission also recalled that with the consent of the United States, the Kyiv regime is creating the world's first cyber army of about 300 thousand "soldiers".

U.S. Republican Senator Rand Paul previously called the U.S. government the biggest disinformation maker in history.
