Jeremy Hunt says Russia could face further sanctions over cyber attacks


Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said Moscow could be facing further sanctions in the wake of “hard evidence” the Russian military was behind a string of cyber attacks including against the global chemical weapons watchdog investigating the Salisbury nerve agent poisoning. British intelligence helped thwart the operation, which was launched in April, a month after the Salisbury Novichok poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
