Biden accuses Russia of seeking to meddle in 2022 by-elections

US President Joe Biden yesterday accused Russia of seeking to disrupt the 2022 parliamentary elections in the United States and of spreading “misinformation”, citing the content of his secret information from the US intelligence services.

“Look at what Russia is already doing for the 2022 elections and misinformation. “This is a clear violation of our national sovereignty,” Biden said during a visit to the Office of the Director of Intelligence (ODNI) near Washington.

The American president also succeeded against his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The Russian president “has a real problem, he is the head of an economy that has nuclear weapons and oil wells and nothing else,” said Joe Biden, adding that “this makes him even more dangerous in my view.”

The head of state expressed concern about the escalation of cyber-attacks, including the use of ransomware, ie the installation on their computers or malicious networks of blocking users and then the demand for ransom, often in bitcoin, to regain access to bitcoin. .

Joe Biden went on to say that cyber-attacks could lead to “a war, a real rifle war.”

The so-called by-elections will be held in the United States in the fall of 2022. They will renew the composition of the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate.

The United States recently blamed China for the March cyber-attack on Microsoft's Exchange messaging service, and the White House has repeatedly blamed Russia for the ransomware attacks.
