Britain and Australia have jointly accused Russian military intelligence of using cyber attacks to sow confusion in everything from sport to transport and the 2016 US presidential election in an effort to undermine Western democracies.

This is deep state propaganda. Russia will be the continued perceived enemy of the west because it is profitable and convient to have it that way.
I'm ranting a little but I want to make the point that regardless of your political stance we, as a society are seeing some big and fast changes and it is our responsibility to try our best to understand those changes and put them to the best use we can, for future generations. Most of the petty bickering we engage in just distracts us and lets others make the choices for us.
Well someone is doing all the cyber intrusion and hacking and Russia are a plausible candidate. plus they are trying to commit cyber crimes against countries that have the ability to work out what is going on.

It saddens me that so many on here distrust their own governments to such a degree that they prefer to believe the lies and propaganda shovelled out to them by a corrupt ex KGB leader of a country that has state controlled media and cracks down on internal dissent with an iron fist.
