Permanent representatives of the 27 member countries of the European Union (EU) agreed on the introduction of restrictive measures against entities and citizens of Russia, China and North Korea, allegedly involved in the cyber attacks, said a source in the delegation of one of the European countries in the EU Council.

The source said that the ambassadors “have agreed on sanctions against the intelligence services of Russia, China and North Korea and Russian and Chinese citizens involved in cyber attacks”, reports TASS.

Previously Director of international information security of the Ministry of foreign Affairs Andrey Krutskikh said that the accusations against Russia and China in the cyber-attacks are politically motivated and used to manipulate public opinion.
