UK to enforce sanctions on Russian GRU officers over cyber attacks on Germany

Thu, 22nd Oct 2020 16:10

LONDON, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Britain will enforce asset
freezes and travel bans against two officers from Russia's
military intelligence agency (GRU) and one of its units
responsible for 2015 cyber attacks on Germany's parliament, the
foreign office said on Thursday.

It said the sanctions, which come into force immediately,
were made under the European Union's regime.

"The UK stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Germany and our
European partners to hold Russia to account for cyber attacks
designed to undermine Western democracies," foreign minister
Dominic Raab said in a statement.

"This criminal behaviour brings the Russian government into
further disrepute."
