"The Sandworm team of Russian military intelligence, alleged to have unleashed computer chaos against the Kremlin's enemies around the world, is said to operate out of a blue-tinted glass skyscraper known simply as "the tower".

From that address, 22 Kirova Street in the Moscow suburb of Khimki, the Sandworm hackers, also known more prosaically as the unit 74455 and "the main centre for special technologies", launched attacks on the Ukrainian power system, Emmanuel Macron's presidential bid in France in 2017, the South Korean Olympics in 2018 and the UK investigation into the 2018 Russian nerve agent attack in Salisbury.

According to cyber security experts, the same unit was involved in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's election campaign in 2016, disguised as a hacktivist group dubbed Fancy Bear.

On Monday, US and UK authorities accused the unit of planning a cyberattack on the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo."

As always, people are the weakest link.

"Trump: I don't see any reason why' Russia would have interfered with election."

So the article depoliticizes everything, brings up examples of their interference all over the world, and you still somehow think Trump is involved. TDS just gives everyone an endless supply of entertainment.

Humtake wouldn't make asinine comments like that if this wasn't an anonymous forum.

You're an embarrassment to humanity at this point.

Go sit in the corner.

Trump IS involved stupid.. He has secret meetings with putin, secret phone calls with putin that they hide recordings of on improper classified servers, owes hundreds of millions of dollars to putin, helped putin launder money in real estate deals, was trying to get trump tower moscow approved by offering putin a private suite at the top floor of it, knew putin was trying to get him elected and didn't report it to the FBI, lied about it, and then picked all of putin's dream team to sabotage US foreign policy once he got elected.

Good summary! And that's just with the available evidence. Just imagine what Rosenstein et al. are actually aware of.
