Russia has flatly denied any hand in the 2015 cyber-attacks on the German parliament, adding that such charges are strange when western governments are so often carrying out cyber-attacks on Russian state institutions.

Russia has officially denied accusations by German intelligence agencies that the Russian state is responsible for the 2015 attacks on the German Parliament.

Robert Schlegel, a member of the Russian State Duma and head of Nashi, a pro-Kremlin political youth movement, told that any accusations of state involvement in the such an act should be supported by evidence.

According to Schlegel, such accusations are often made without proof. Schlegel added that there is a need to pay more attention to the actions of the US and other western countries in cyber-space. According to Schlegel, Western intelligence agencies are commonly involved in cyber-attacks on the websites of Russian state agencies.

The position is shared by Oleg Demidov, a senior analyst in cyber-security for the PIR Centre, a Russian analyst agency, who told SC that this is the first time Germany has brought such charges on an official level.
