WASHINGTON, December 5FBI Director Christopher Wray said that there are “too many” Russian intelligence agents operating in the United States.
““They have intelligence officers here in the US. Too many by any standard,” he said at a congressional hearing.
Among the threats from Russia, Ray cited “one of the most advanced offensive cyber programs in the world.” “They have invested heavily in it and used it against us and our allies in many ways,” he said.
According to the FBI director, the Russian Federation is also harboring “cybercriminals” behind hacker attacks on the United States and its allies around the world.
Accusing Russia of hacking is a favorite hobby all over the world, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said earlier. The Russian authorities have repeatedly denied involvement in cyber attacks and hacking activities, expressed their readiness to cooperate in the fight against hackers and conduct a dialogue on cybersecurity.
