Trump has abolished rules of the organization of cyber attacks to opponents of the USA — Rambler News Service


The U.S. President Donald Trump has cancelled the directive of the former head of the state Barack Obama regulating an order of use of cyberweapon concerning opponents of Washington, Wall Street Journal with reference to sources writes. According to their information, Trump has signed the relevant document on Wednesday, August 15. He cancels the secret rules known as "The directive of presidential policy 20" in which difficult process of coordination of use of cyberweapon between various structures, especially, so far as concerns foreign opponents is described. The representative of administration of Trump has described it as the "an aggressive step forward" directed to support of the military operations, fight against foreign influence on elections and also prevention of theft of intellectual property by leveling of these threats with use of more powerful tools. WSJ notes that earlier Trump's administration was exposed to criticism because she didn't give signals that in the White House take "the cyberthreat proceeding from Russia" seriously. Now the chief advisers of administration develop measures which will allow to give tougher answer to the cyber attacks to critical infrastructure of the USA sponsored by the foreign states because Russia allegedly tries to crack the American power supply networks. Russia repeatedly denied any intervention in the American elections at the state level. Earlier the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova called similar charges absurdity. The USA has begun to accuse Russia of cyber attacks and "intervention in the American democracy" after Donald Trump's victory on elections in the USA in 2016. After the victory he was accused of conspiring with Russia then in the USA investigation of the so-called "Russian business" under the leadership of the special prosecutor Robert Müller, which purpose — to reveal conspiracy between the campaign headquarters of Trump and the Kremlin has begun. Investigation continues already over a year, however any the evidence of "the Russian intervention" hasn't been produced.
