Microsoft making Ukraine digitally dependent on US - Russia

Microsoft Corporation is following the United States Department of Defense's (DoD) orders on collecting intelligence information and putting Ukraine's infrastructure under its control, depriving that country of its "digital independence," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov stated on Monday.

Speaking to reporters, Syromolotov claimed Microsoft admits it itself in its latest report on the conflict in Ukraine. "Everything suggests that the report was concocted under the Russophobic guidelines of the US administration or even written under the dictation of its functionaries. It contains myths about hackers acting on orders from Moscow. [...] The company does not bother to present any evidence," he said.

Back in April, Microsoft claimed in one of its reports on cybersecurity that Russia conducted over 200 cyberattacks on Ukraine since the start of its military operation there.
