Trump extended the sanctions for ” interference in the election”

U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to extend Barack Obama’s 2015 decree, which imposed sanctions in response to cyber threats, for another year. In particular, this decree introduced sanctions against Russia for alleged “interference in the elections.

The notice, signed by Trump, states that “malicious cyber activities continue to pose an extraordinary and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy and economy of the United States.

The Russian authorities deny the accusations of cyberattacks and interference in the elections, considering them to be unproven.
