Up to 30 percent of the total number of cyberattacks on Russian electronic infrastructure originate from the United States, Federation Council international committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev said Tuesday at a meeting of the upper house’s commission on protection of state sovereignty.

“From the Russian territory, no more than 2 percent of the total number of cyberattacks occur on US computers, while from the US territory the Russian electronic infrastructure is attacked in 28-29 percent of cases,” Kosachev said.

Earlier the day it was reported that the websites of Russian Rosneft and Bashneft oil companies are down following the cyberattack.
