    Russian President Putin's special envoy, Andrey Krutskikh, said on Monday that Moscow and Washington should overcome differences in relations to set the tone for global cyber disarmament.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow and Washington should strengthen efforts to normalize bilateral relations and set the scene for "cyber disarmament" around the world, Krutskikh, the special representative of the Russian president for international cooperation in information security, said Monday.

    "We need to normalize relations with the United States since an unhealthy situation has developed. Both Moscow and Washington are interested in non-interference in internal affairs, setting the tone for cyber disarmament on our planet," Krutskikh told the RT broadcaster.

    The special representative said Russia had concluded dozens of agreements on cooperation in the information security area, including with all BRICS countries — Brazil, India, China and South Africa.

    On July 20, Krutskikh said Moscow and Washington were in talks on the establishment of a cybersecurity group. He stressed that Russia had responded immediately after the United States inquired about alleged cyber interference one week ahead of the November 8, 2016, US presidential election.
