A spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said that Norway’s accusations that Moscow was behind the computer attack on the Norwegian parliament (Storting) this summer damage an already bad relationship between the countries.
The accusations are entirely void of evidence, the spokesperson told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The accusations were not received well by the Russian authorities, who believe that the allegations are unacceptable.
“A clear message”
Norwegian authorities believe they have proof that Russia is behind the computer attack.
Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) had a clear message for President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.
“It is important for the government to give a clear message to the Russians that we won’t accept this,” Solberg said.
