The U.S. government is joining Germany in blaming the APT28 group for “specific malicious activities against a German political party,” the U.S. State Department said Friday.

It said Russia’s conduct flagrantly violates the framework for responsible state behavior in cyberspace. They call on Russia to stop these “malign actions and comply with its international obligations and commitments.”

The SPD and German companies in the fields of logistics, weapons, aerospace and information technology services have long been targeted by cyber attacks. The central government blames the Russian military intelligence agency for this. “Russian state hackers have attacked Germany in cyberspace,” Foreign Minister Annalena Berbach said during a visit to Australia in Adelaide.

The U.S. State Department has asserted that the U.S. government has already indicted and imposed sanctions on actors associated with APT28 for engaging in “various malicious cyber activities.”

These included cyber operations aimed at interfering in the 2016 US presidential election. The US Department of Justice worked with Germany in the fight against APT28.
