Cyber attacks: NATO warns Russia to halt 'reckless' behaviour

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday warned Russia to halt its "reckless" behaviour, after the Netherlands revealed it had foiled a Kremlin cyber attack on the global chemical weapons watchdog.

"Russia must stop its reckless pattern of behaviour, including the use of force against its neighbours, attempted interference in election processes, and widespread disinformation campaigns," he said.

Stoltenberg added that NATO fully supports moves to name and shame Russia over electronic warfare, speaking shortly after Britain and Australia blamed Russian military intelligence for recent attacks.
