The representative of Russian foreign ministry explained the allegation as a “rich fantasy of our colleagues from Britain”.
The computers of the World Anti-Doping Agency are also informed to have been charged.
Later files are executed showcasing how Chris Froome and Sir Bradley Wiggins, the British cyclists had used prohibited substances for authorized medical reasons.
At the same time, the few of the attacks were involved in Russia – but for the first time, UK has parted the GRU, the military intelligence service of Russia.
According to the British police, the men who conducted the Salisbury poisoning in March was from the same group.
Maria Zakharova said that UK’s charges were “mixed in one perfume bottle”, adding “Maybe a Nina Ricci bottle: GRU, WADA, Kremlin hackers -it’s a diabolical perfume” representing the Russian foreign ministry.
But Gavin Williamson, the Defence Minister criticised Russia as a “ pariah state” and commented the “ reckless and indiscriminate” attacks of Moscow had left it secluded in the international circle.
The NCSC commented, “ with high confidence” that it has evaluated that the GRU was “ almost certainly responsible ” for the cyber-attacks.
Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary said GRU had conducted a campaign of “ reckless and indiscriminate” cyber attacks that served “ no legitimate national security interest”.
Andrew Tsonchev, the cybersecurity consultant said, “ The more obvious and urgent effect that people need to be aware of is that the services they use the essential service – are at risk are actively being targeted for sabotage.”
