Germany recalls envoy to Russia over cyberattack


The German ambassador to Russia was recalled for consultations on Monday after Berlin accused Moscow of carrying out cyberattacks, Paralel.Az reports citing DW.

In line with protocol, a spokesperson said, Ambassador Alexander Graf Lambsdorff is to return to Berlin on a temporary basis.

A Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Lambsdorff had "been called back for consultations and will stay in Berlin for a week and then return to Moscow."

The spokesperson said the decision had come from Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

The German government takes the cyberattack "very seriously," considering it an action "against our liberal democracy," the spokesperson said.
