The European Union Condemns Alleged Russian Cyber-Attacks Ahead of German Vote

“Some EU Member States have observed malicious cyber activities, collectively designated as ‘Ghostwriter’, and associated these with the Russian state. Such activities are unacceptable as they seek to threaten our integrity and security, democratic values and principles and the core functioning of our democracies,” foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said.
