"Given that in recent days the British media, instigated by official statements, has again started to exploit the issue of 'cyberthreats from Russian Federation, ' impression grows that the British public is being prepared for a massive cyber attack by the United Kingdom against Russian Federation, that will purport to be of a retaliatory nature, but would in fact constitute unprovoked use of force".

"We have high confidence that Russian Federation has carried out a coordinated campaign to gain access to enterprise, small office, home office routers known as SOHO routers and residential routers, and the switches and connectors worldwide", said Rob Joyce, special assistant to the President and cybersecurity coordinator at the White House, speaking to journalists.

"Russia is our most capable hostile adversary in cyberspace so dealing with their attacks is a major priority for the National Cyber Security Centre and our USA allies", he said.

"The UK government will continue to work with the USA, other worldwide allies and industry partners to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they are held accountable for their actions", he commented.

"The attribution of this malicious activity sends a clear message to Russian Federation - we know what you are doing and you will not succeed", the spokesman added.

The FBI also pledged to do whatever it takes to combat Russian cyberattacks.
