Russian FM Lavrov refuses to use 4-letter words in comments about Russian hackers

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he could not exclude expletives from his comments about the Russian trace in the hacking of the US Democratic Party mail server. It was reported that Russian hackers could be involved in the recent cyber attack on the USA. 

Last week, WikiLeaks published documents indicating that the party leadership was favoring Hillary Clinton in the fight for the right to become a candidate for US presidency to the detriment of Bernie Sanders.

"I would not like to use four-letter words," Lavrov said when asked to comment on the Russian track in the data leak.

The New York Times wrote with reference to computer security experts that the metadata of the documents of the Democratic National Committee contained traces of computers with Russian language settings.The traces were reportedly found in the code that was used to hack into the computer network of the national committee of the party. 

In June, computer security experts told The Washington Post that the headquarters of the Democratic Party were infiltrated by hacker groups that were allegedly associated with Russia. Spokespeople for CrowdStrike clarified that it goes about such groups as Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear. According to the experts, the groups could be linked with the Russian FSB and the Central Intelligence Directorate (GRU).

The Kremlin has ruled out any involvement of Russian state structures in the hacking of computer networks of the Democrat Party. Later, lone hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 claimed responsibility for the attack. He promised that the hacked documents would be published on WikiLeaks.

On Monday, the head of the US Democratic National Committee (DNC), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, announced a decision to resign in connection with the scandal about the leak.
