Microsoft’s statements about Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) ties to the Nobelium hacker group are unfounded and represent yet another disinformation from Western intelligence services. This is indicated in the SVR message, received by RBC.

Formerly Tom Burt, Vice President of Customer Security at Microsoft reportedthat in July-October 2021, the Nobelium hacker group carried out more than 22.8 thousand cyberattacks against technology companies. He also pointed out the connection between the hackers and the SVR.

“The Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation is under constant pressure from Western special services and, at their suggestion, an aggressive disinformation campaign by the media that depend on them. <...> The example you cited with unsubstantiated, essentially absurd accusations against the Russian SVR is only an insignificant part of this ongoing fight for information, “the SVR said in a statement.

The secret service noted that SVR director Sergei Naryshkin has repeatedly stated that such accusations are provocative and tailor-made.
