The leaders of the G7 countries will speak at the summit in Carbis Bay with an appeal to Russia to punish members of hacker groups operating on its territory.

Bloomberg journalists got acquainted with the draft final joint statement of the states. According to the agency, it includes “a call to Russia to prosecute groups within its borders that carry out cyberattacks with the aim of extortion, use virtual currencies to launder ransom, and commit other cybercrimes.” The material notes that the final text of the final statement has not yet been approved.

The UK is going to hold the G7 summit in the traditional format from June 11 to 13 in the resort town of Carbis Bay on the Atlantic coast of the Cornwall peninsula. In addition to the leaders of the G7 countries and the head of the European Commission, the President of the European Council Charles Michel will take part in the summit.

Recall At the end of May, JBS’s manufacturing facilities around the world were hit by a cyberattack that forced the company to halt production in Australia and the United States. On Tuesday, May 1, the company announced that it has made “significant progress” in recovering from the cyberattack and plans to launch “most” of its production processes on Wednesday.

The cybercriminal group REvil (Sodinokibi), linked by many information security experts with Russia, is behind the attack on the world’s largest meat producer JBS.
