MOSCOW: Russia provided the United States with exhaustive information about hacking of the Democratic Party’s server during elections in 2016. The first report regarding the alleged interference of Russia with operation of the Democratic Party’s server appeared on October 31, 2016 only, Deputy Director of the National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents Nikolay Murashov said on Tuesday.
“A series of supplements to it followed, which contained certain technical information about the performed hacking. We analyzed all that information. A response, which was exhaustive nature from our point of view, was sent to the US side even before the inauguration of President Trump,” Murashov said.READ ALSO
These data cannot be disclosed without consent of either party in accordance with intergovernmental agreements governing the exchange of information, the official said. “In connection therewith, we are ready to publish all the available correspondence if the US side gives consent to that,” Murashov noted.
The United States initially has not approached Russia using official channels, Murashov said. “Indeed, in June 2016, the US mass media and the US politicians, primarily the ones close to the Democratic Party, made allegations against Russia concerning reportedly hacked server of the Democratic Party. At the same time, we have not received any information through the official channels, while such official channels already existed between Russia and the US and their exact purpose was to eliminate potential conflict situation that may occur between the parties,” he added.
