Including Russia and a number of other countries in the list of the main cyber threats to the United States, the Pentagon is trying to justify the existence of its own cyber army, says Anton Morozov, a member of the State Duma’s Committee on International Affairs.
Earlier, FoxNews referring to excerpts from the document that came to its disposal, said that the Pentagon has included Russia and China in the list of the main threats in its new strategy on cybersecurity. As they say in the strategy, the US faces “imminent and unacceptable risk” from “harmful cyber-activities” and “were involved in long-term strategic rivalry with China and Russia.”
“I think these invented threats are invented by the US military, they justify the existence of cyber army in the US. In order not to be “circus” troops, they come up with a threat that Russia, North Korea and China are of danger for the US. In our armed units there are no such units that would be aimed at cyber attacks, so this is all to justify their intentions,” Morozov told RIA Novosti.
