Belgium: 'Reckless and irresponsible behaviour from Moscow' — US Def. Sec.

The alleged cyberattacks by Russia's intelligence services are the latest in a worldwide pattern of «reckless and irresponsible behaviour from Moscow,» claimed US Defence Secretary James Mattis in Brussels on Thursday. Speaking during the NATO Defence Ministers Meeting, Mattis stated that the US «stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our Dutch, British and all NATO allies and likeminded countries... Еще against Russia.» «The Russians got caught with their equipment, with people who were doing it and they have to pay the piper, they are going to have to be held to account. How we respond is a political decision by the nations involved,» Mattis added. Mattis' statements came after Dutch Defence Minister Ank Bijleveld-Schouten said that Dutch intelligence had disrupted a cyber operation allegedly conducted by the Russian military intelligence service, GRU, against the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) headquarters in The Hague. Four Russian nationals have been expelled from the Netherlands on suspicion of their involvement in the alleged attack. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has since described the accusations as «big fantasies.»
