    Moscow is willing to share cybercrime information with Washington, but does not see similar willingness from the United States, Russian Foreign Ministry's Human Rights Ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – He stressed that he saw no indication that the United States was willing to reciprocate, citing Washington's practice of applying its laws outside its territorial jurisdiction.

    "We are saying directly: if you have claims toward our citizens, our law enforcement agencies work very effectively on a range of crimes, including cybercrime. Let us share this information, let us work together," Dolgov told reporters.

    At bilateral consultations held on April 21-22 in Geneva, high-ranking Russian and US officials agreed to boost practical cooperation in the fight against cyber threats, the Russian Security Council said.

    The sides discussed drafting the "norms, rules and principles of responsible behavior of countries in cyberspace, maintaining stability in the information space, and countering terrorism and crimes in the sphere of information technologies."

    The council added that Moscow and Washington discussed improving information exchanges via channels of communication in line with the June 17, 2013, joint statement on cooperation to counter terrorism.

    The Russian delegation was headed by Security Council Deputy Secretary Sergey Buravlev, while Special Assistant to the President and Cybersecurity Coordinator Michael Daniel represented the United States at the consultations.

    Officials with Russia's Security Council, the ministries of foreign affairs, defense, and the interior, as well as the Federal Security Service and the Federal Guard Service also took part in the meeting. US interests were represented by the White House, the state, defense and homeland security departments, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Intelligence Council.
