US President Joe Biden's administration is working on sanctions against Russia over the situation with opposition activist Alexei Navalny and Russia's alleged involvement in a cyberattack on US government agencies and the private sector.
This was reported by The Washington Post, citing its sources.
According to the newspaper, the purpose of the new restrictive measures will be a certain signal that the US administration wants to demonstrate to the Russian authorities.
According to the current head of the White House, for years Moscow has been using its capabilities in cyberspace to carry out actions unacceptable to both the United States and its allies.
It should be reminded that we are talking about a cyber attack by unknown perpetrators on US public and private networks, which began in March last year. It came to light in December.
