Poland expresses full solidarity with Germany and the Czech Republic in connection with cyberattacks by a group linked to Russian military intelligence, said the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

On Friday, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock stated that Russian military intelligence was behind last year's cyberattack on the board of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD). According to Baerbock, the investigation into this attack conducted under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs showed that the attack was carried out by the APT28 group, which is led by the Russian military intelligence GRU.

On the same day, the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that some Czech institutions had also been targeted by cyberattacks by a group linked to the Russian military intelligence service GRU.

Both countries have publicly attributed responsibility for these actions to the Advanced Persistent Threat 28 group controlled by the Russian Federation,” reads the statement issued on Saturday by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Its authors emphasized that Poland, which is also one of the targets of APT 28 attacks, “strongly condemns the repeated, unacceptable and harmful activities carried out in cyberspace by Russian entities.”
