Leaders focus on cybersecurity after Russian attacks

Heads of EU governments will discuss online security when they meet later this month, in a change to their meeting agenda following recent revelations about Russian cyber attacks.

The discussions will take place on 18 October at the next European Council meeting of the EU’s 28 national leaders, Council president Donald Tusk (pictured) announced on 4 October.

“Today, the Dutch and UK governments informed [us] about a cyber attack against the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in the Hague, which was carried out by Kremlin intelligence services,” Tusk said. “On behalf of the EU, I want to fully condemn this attack and express our complete solidarity with those affected. I will put the issue of cybersecurity on the agenda of the next European Council.”
