Russia, the United States, and other nations have reached a new deal to combat cyber hacking

The statement says Russian intelligence was behind last year’s massive “SolarWinds” hack, and accuses Moscow of interference in the 2020 election.

The measures, which target dozens of Russian entities and officials, aim to deter “Russia’s harmful foreign activities”, the White House said.

Russia denies all the allegations and says it will respond in kind.

The sanctions announced on Thursday are detailed in an executive order signed by President Joe Biden. They come at a tense time for relations between the two countries.

A statement from the White House said the new sanctions show the US “will impose costs in a strategic and economically impactful manner on Russia” if it continues its “destabilising international action”.

It reaffirms the administration’s view that the Russian government is behind cyber-attacks and has been trying to “undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections” in the US and allied nations.

It specifically blames Russia’s foreign intelligence service, the SVR, for the SolarWinds attack, which gave cyber-criminals potential access to 18,000 government and private computer networks.
