Biden administration is preparing a series of cyber attacks on Russia
It became known that the White House is really going to boil the tension between the U.S. and Russia, putting the world back on the tracks of the cold war.
This time the cold war is threatening to be transferred to the cyber sphere. The Biden administration is reportedly preparing a series of cyber-attacks on Russia. The act is designed as warning shot to the countries like Russia and China.
The attack is reportedly expected in the next fortnight. The strike is a retaliation act for the attack against SolarWinds, which was allegedly performed by the Kremlin last year. According to the Telegraph, the attack will be aimed directly at Russian President Vladimir Putin and will not involve any civilian structures.
This is the dumbest move ever, warn beforehand of the attacks.
In Meantime, the White House confirmed the “seen and unseen” actions against the Russian Federation. However, it wasn’t specified how and when it’s going to take place.
“I actually believe that a set of measures that are understood by the Russians, but may not be visible to the broader world, are actually likely to be the most effective measures in terms of clarifying what the United States believes are in bounds and out of bounds, and what we are prepared to do in response,” Jake Sullivan, US National Security Adviser, told the New York Times this week.
The Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, after being alarmed of the reports, called the U.S. intentions "pure international cybercrime."
1) This is insane warmongering and can easily turn into future kinetic conflict.— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) March 21, 2021
2) Pre-announcing a cyber attack (and taking credit for it, thus taking away plausible deniability) is the dumbest move imaginable. https://t.co/o4xMy1YG2v
