Borrell: EU supports US sanctions on Russia

European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell expressed on Thursday the bloc's solidarity with Washington "in connection with the consequences of malicious actions in cyberspace [...], which, according to the United States, was carried out by Russia."

"The use of information and communication technologies with malicious intent reduces the benefits of the internet and technology, and also demonstrates the willingness of some parties to threaten international stability and security," Borrell said. He added Brussels would conduct further investigations of cyberattacks aimed at its own institutions.

Earlier in the day, US President Joe Biden imposed sanctions on Russia "for actions by its government and intelligence services against US sovereignty and interests." Moscow responded by blaming Washington for the poor state of the relations between the two countries.
