US attorney general accuses Apple of being in cahoots with Russia

WASHINGTON/MOSCOW, May 19 (PRIME) -- U.S. Attorney General William Barr accused Apple late on Monday of cooperation with Russian and China that try to survey citizens.

УThere have been many reports that Apple is working with the Chinese Communist Party and the Russian regime to move thedata centers so that the governments of these countries can organize large-scale surveillance,Ф Barr said at a news conference.

He said Apple had switched off some options that protected democracy and promoted instead Уcensorship and harassment.Ф

The Russian presidentТs special representative Andrei Krutskikh, who also heads the Foreign MinistryТs department of international information security, told PRIME, УThe scale of anti-Russian accusations has reached another phase in the US, namely: beat your own people so that others are afraid. This does not characterize them well,Ф he said.

According to the diplomat, Russia has already offered the United States at all levels to sit down at the negotiating table and clarify mutual claims in order to develop an algorithm for a constructive analysis of all situations that arise. УHowever, the US is not yet ready for this. But they have matured to the point that even their businessmen in the cybersphere are beginning to raise their hand,Ф Krutskikh said.
