The deputy government spokesperson Wolfgang Buechner, based on reliable information from the German secret services, said today that cyberattacks by the Apt28 group – linked to Russian intelligence – hit several German institutions. These include state bodies and companies in the logistics, armaments, aerospace, IT services sectors, as well as foundations and associations. Buechner’s statements closely follow those made by the Foreign Minister a few hours ago Annalena Baerbock (Greens) during a state visit to Adelaide, Australia.

Baerbock had accused Russian intelligence (GRU) of a cyber attack against the Social Democratic Party (SPD) at the beginning of last year. ”We can clearly attribute this attack to the Apt28 group, controlled by the Russian military intelligence service GRU. In other words: State hackers from the Kremlin attacked the Germany in cyberspace” the minister declared. Following these statements, the German Foreign Ministry today summoned the interim charge d’affaires of the Russian embassy.
