According to a detailed and explosive report by the New York Times on Wednesday, a software expert in Ukraine who wrote one of the “malware” — that is, software designed to infiltrate and attack other computers — programs used by a Russian intelligence unit to hack the DNC servers, has turned himself into authorities there and has already revealed his connections to the Russian hacking attacks

- WASHINGTON — North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile programme, according to an expert analysis published yesterday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies. The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by US sabotage of its supply chains and cyber attacks on its launches

Russian deputy minister blacklisted in new EU sanctions over Siemens turbines to Crimea
