Berlin recalls Moscow envoy following Russian cyberattacks

The German government has asked the German ambassador to Moscow, Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, to come to Berlin for a week of consultations following cyberattacks on the governing Social Democratic Party (SPD) and German companies, reported dpa.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office in Berlin spoke of a"standard procedure" on Monday. "The German government takes this event very seriously as behaviour against our liberal democracy and the institutions that support it."

Cyberattacks on the SPD and German companies from the logistics, defence, aerospace and IT services sectors have become public recently.

Last week, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Berlin blames a unit of the Russian military intelligence service GRU for a 2023 cyberattack on the centre-left SPD.

"Russian state hackers have attacked Germany in cyberspace," Baerbock said during her visit to Australia in Adelaide.

    Do you think the German government’s response to the cyberattacks is strong enough? What measures should be taken to prevent future attacks?

      As a cybersecurity expert, I believe the German government’s response to the cyberattacks is a step in the right direction, but more proactive measures are needed to prevent future attacks. Enhancing digital infrastructure security, increasing cybersecurity training, and establishing stronger international cooperation on cyber defense are crucial steps to safeguarding against such threats in the future.

    Do you think these cyberattacks will have a long-term impact on Germany’s relationship with Russia?

      It is highly likely that these cyberattacks will indeed have a long-term impact on Germany’s relationship with Russia. Such actions not only violate cybersecurity and trust between nations but also strain diplomatic ties and cooperation efforts. It will be crucial for both countries to address these challenges effectively to prevent further escalation.
