Moscow rejects the accusations saying it only targets militants and accuses the West of being responsible for the crisis in Syria.

US' intention to impose sanctions over Russian-orchestrated hacker attacks is provocation, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Krutskikh says

The threats to impose sanctions against Russia for cyber-attacks voiced by the U.S. are a “provocation and nonsense.”

As reported by Censor.NET citing Tass news agency, this was stated by Russian President's Special Envoy, Ambassador at Large of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Andrey Krutskikh.

"The Russian authorities are in charge of taking decisions as for how to respond to the provocations. It is clear that all provocations will meet with response. We have our own leverage. Another thing that it is not our choice," he said.

"We consider all these initiatives of individual senators to be nonsense and provocation. All these charges are unsubstantiated. We have received no statements or notes through formal channels," the official stressed.

"All of this suggests that the Americans fan [tensions] for the domestic audience. There is no other explanation, because if they have really been committed to resolve, clarify something, they would have used the appropriate existing mechanisms," Krutskikh noted.

However, according to him, "the Americans are reluctant to slow down in bringing charges." "It depends on them how long they will keep accelerating and whether they will remember to slow down making sharp turns. But most importantly, this dangerous driving worsens the political climate," the official added.

Krutskikh stressed the need to reach agreements in this field. "After all, if the cybersphere is so vulnerable that there are plenty of disguised threats, it is necessary to talk to the other party but not engage in unilateral accusations," he said.

As reported, on Oct. 8, Republican Senator Cory Gardner, chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific and International Cybersecurity, said he planned to introduce sanctions legislation to counter Russian cyber-attacks. In Ukrainian/український

The Washington Post debunked five myths about Russia

The publication analyzed whether Putin made Russia great and is actually so much people love Russian President

Publication of The Washington Post published an article that talks about the major Western myths about Russia and its debunking. In particular, refuted five theses on Russia.

Myth 1: "Russia is trying to give the US elections Donald Trump."

"It's less a myth than a conspiracy theory - says the publication. - Like most conspiracy theories, [this version] begins with the facts, which then joined imaginary connections ". "The truth is that Putin would like to become a president who is anything but Hillary Clinton - says the author.

Trump evidence of ties with Moscow a little. A much more serious look at cyber Democratic National Committee and election systems in which the Obama administration formally accuses Russia. But these actions fit into the Russian behavior over the world. For example, in 2007 for her performance temporarily lost the government of Estonia. "The aim of these attacks - undermining the election, but not necessarily in the interest of Trump," - says the publication.

Myth 2: "Putin has made Russia great again"

"Ordinary Russian is much richer than 20 years ago, but poorer than five years ago or even two years ago, when oil prices are rising and falling, not obeying Putin was at its peak," - the article says .

Thus, "although difficult to obtain reliable statistics, it seems that Russia has one of the highest per cent of homicides in the world, and these indicators have not improved, even when nalahodzhuvalasya economic situation. Loud killings of politicians, journalists and businessmen - and at least one of them British investigators directly linked with Putin - does not cause a sense of security. "

Myth 3: "The vast majority of Russians support Putin's policies"

Rating of Putin, who has reached 90% after the annexation of the Crimea, really high and now stands at about 82% .

"However, the Russians did not approve of the work of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev (his current disapproval rating is 51%), its cabinet (55%) and parliament (62%). All three [political units] are only for the legalization of Kremlin policy, which goes directly to Putin. The majority of Russians also recognized that the future is in their pessimism - referred to in the article. - How to explain this discrepancy? Citizens of restless, anxious and want to identify with a symbolic leader or business. They support Putin because he did not leave them a choice. "

Myth 4: "Russian society holds conservative values"

"Putin has criticized the West for" denial of moral principles and traditional identities ", positioning Russia as a defender of traditional values ​​- like the author. - The Russian government sought publication of the law of morality. His most desperate endeavors in this area - a ban "homosexual propaganda" and adoption of children by people from countries where same-sex marriages are allowed. As a result, Russia has become a beacon for the angry far-right extremists from around the world, which draws its apparent traditionalism. "

"These extremists can wait disappointment," - says the publication also cites statistics about the attitude of Russians to various social problems. More than half of Russians do not see anything wrong with premarital sex, a quarter - of adultery. Overall, 20% of the population believe that the government should take action against abortion, while 40% of Americans want to keep abortion outlawed. "

"The Putin government is selling the country a vague vision of an imaginary past and traditional enemies, who are likely to threaten him. Enemies can be LGBT today, tomorrow - Ukrainian, the next day - Americans. And while people struggling with these enemies, Putin remains in power ", - says the publication.

Myth 5: "Russian politics - mainly a reaction to the behavior of the West"

American leftists believe that the US showed its insensitivity to Russia of aggression, the American right - that the cause is excessive softness of America, said in the article. Putin actually motivated by a desire to expand to and stay in power, says the publication. "None of these factors has nothing to do with the US, despite the Russian habit to blame America for their problems," - said in the article. In Ukrainian/український

The article states that Trump is receiving classified intelligence briefings, so he is certainly aware of the evidence that hackers backed by Moscow have stolen email and other records from the DNC and tried to penetrate state electoral systems.

The leaks traced to Russia through the WikiLeaks website have been aimed at Clinton, according to the editorial.

Mr. Putin surely knows the answer to that question - but U.S. voters do not," the article concludes. In Ukrainian/український
