Norway holds Russia responsible for a major digital attack on parliament in August. In the attack, email accounts of MPs were hacked. The Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs says that Norway “based on government information” assumes that Russia is behind the attack.

The Norwegian parliament announced on September 1 that it had been the target of the attack the previous week. At the time, authorities did not say who they hold responsible for the operation.

It is unclear whether Norway will now take action against Russia. A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would not say anything about it. The Russian ministry was not immediately accessible.

Russia has recently been accused of digital attacks on Western countries more often. In July, the European Union imposed sanctions for the first time for cyber attacks of Russian origin. This happened in response to, among other things, the hack attempt on the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) in The Hague in 2018.

It was the first time that the Council of the European Union imposed sanctions. The Council has had this power since May 2019. Sanctions against individuals must have a punitive and deterrent effect.
