Trump wants sources of info on anti-Russia cyberattacks disclosed
MOSCOW, Jun 18 (PRIME) -- U.S. President Donald Trump has demanded from The New York Times in a Twitter post on Tuesday to disclose sources of its earlier report on WashingtonТs escalation of cyberattacks on Russian power grids.
УThe story in the @nytimes about the U.S. escalating attacks on RussiaТs power grid is Fake News, and the Failing New York Times knows it. They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony. Times must be held fully accountable!Ф Trump wrote.
The U.S. president earlier denied the newspaperТs information and called the story as an act of treason.
A spokesperson for RussiaТs Energy Ministry said earlier that the countryТs power companies, which ensure protection of their information systems from outside attacks on their own, have not complained of any aggression.
