EU to take action against Russian hackers


In the wake of Russian hackers’ attack on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the European Commission is developing measures to counter their cyber threats.

The German newspaper Handelsblatt has recently got the word out with reference to the draft statement by the members of the upcoming EU summit which is scheduled for October, 18.

According to the information by the media outlet, the European Union is set to condemn Russian agents’ attack on the chemical weapons watchdog which was previously reported about by the Dutch authorities. In addition, EU leaders who are set to protect the democratic system and fight against disinformation before the elections to the European Parliament in May 2019 will stress the pressing need for measures against fake news from Russia.

Meanwhile, the European Commission is about to present a plan to counter cyber threats in December. The institution has developed a number of regulations in the field of cyber-security which are to be taken by April 2019, Handelsblatt reports.
