He also added that Ukraine was ready to strengthen cooperation with Norway and other partners in order to counter cyberthreats.

As we reported earlier, Foreign Ministry of Norway found Russia’s involvement in hacking the emails of members of the Norwegian parliament Storting in August, during which a data leak had occurred.

On August 24, Storting announced a data leak in its e-mail systems. It is a serious incident affecting our most important democratic institution. Security and intelligence services are working closely on a national settlement of the incident. According to the government’s information base, we believe that Russia is behind this activity,” the statement said.
