The US and its allies have repeatedly accused Russia of carrying out aggressive cyber operations against other states. Moscow has denied the claims, and called for international cooperation in the field of cybersecurity. Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton has confirmed that the US is engaged in offensive cyber operations abroad to show Russia and other nations that they “will pay a price” for their interference in US affairs. Speaking at an event in Washington on Tuesday, Bolton said that last year’s decision to eliminate restrictions on offensive US cyber operations was a message to US adversaries.
