Biden: US “secretly” responded to Russia’s alleged hacker attacks
According to the vice-president, some of the steps taken by Washington are public, while others will remain secret.
The outgoing American administration ‘retaliated’ against our country for fictitious hacker attacks not only with new sanctions and the expulsion of diplomats, but also some ‘secret operations’ by security services. This was reported in an extensive interview with PBS by US vice-president Joseph Biden.
“When the question over a month ago was whether we will respond to hacker attacks, I said we’ll do it when (and how) we want to. Some things that we had done, you already know – other things you will never know,” – he said, stressing that Washington had two options to respond to Russia for alleged interference in the presidential election, overt and covert.
“We did both,” – said Biden.
