The Russian Ambassador in Berlin, Sergei Nechayev was summoned to the German foreign Ministry in connection with the case of the hacker attack on the Bundestag. As reported by RIA “Novosti” with reference to the press service of the Ministry, the state Secretary of the Federal foreign Ministry Miguel Berger strongly condemned a hacker attack on the German Bundestag, in conversation with the Russian Ambassador.

“The Russian Ambassador was informed that the Federal government in Brussels uses the mode cybermancy the EU against those responsible for the attack on the German Bundestag, including Mr. Badin”, – said the Minister.
April 30, 2015 several members of the Bundestag received in the mail a phishing email, which included the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The link inside led to a fake website of the UN, and in contact with the site on a computer stealthily installed malware.

Hacker attack was so severe that the computer system of the Bundestag had to unplug for a few days for security purposes.
Prosecutors claim that one of the organizers of the breaking of the German Parliament was a hacker Dmitry badin – 29-year-old native of Kursk, working in one of the units of the GRU and the accused, in particular, of meddling in the election campaign of 2016 in the United States.
