NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg accused Russia of a cyberattack on the Norwegian parliament. He told about this on the air of the Norwegian TV channel “TV2”, reports TASS.
The head of the alliance noted that he trusts the conclusions of the Norwegian authorities about Russia's involvement in the incident. Stoltenberg also stressed that a hacker attack on a government agency is a very serious incident.
Earlier, the Norwegian Foreign Ministry said that Russia was behind the August cyberattack on the Norwegian parliament (Storting). The head of the department, Ine Eriksen Sereide, said that the country's security and intelligence services are closely cooperating on this issue at the international level.
The Norwegian parliament announced on September 1 the attack by the hackers. In a cyberattack on August 24, unknown persons took possession of e-mail and other personal data of employees of the legislative body.
