In reply to the statement spread by the Government of Georgia with regards to massive cyberattack, the Department of Information and Press of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia announced the following:
“In connection to the accusation of Russia by the Georgian authorities, USA, Great Britain, and some European countries of the massive cyberattacks on Georgian internet-sites, servers, and operational systems, we would like indicate the following: Spread of the groundless and politically motivated fictitious information is obvious. There exists and may exist no evidence of involvement of the Russian official structures in the activities damaging the Georgian electronic networks. A synchronized propagandistic action deserves an attention that is arranged by Washington, London, Tbilisi, and others. It took four months to establish whether Russia was participating in the incident that as if happened on 28th October, last year. All these accusations come as highly likely. It is too pity that Georgia does not want to refuse the Russia’s demonization line and learn lesson from the last year crisis. All this is shadowing even more the not so simple relations between us. However, we are again sure that overcome of the existing confrontations and commencement of a process of normalization will meet the fundamental interests of the Georgian and Russian nations. We understand there are forces for which this normalization is absolutely unacceptable” – Foreign Ministry of Russia says.
