Germany said on 28 February hackers had breached its government computer network with an isolated attack and German media reported that the attack was launched by Russian hacker group APT28.

“We note with regret that any hacking attacks in the world are associated with Russian hackers but that each time they (the allegations) are made without any tangible proof,” Peskov told a conference call with reporters.
