    Dmitry Peskov said that authorities have no reliable information on the origins of cyberattacks that swept round the world.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Kremlin does not have reliable information on the origins of a large-scale cyberattack that swept through Russian, Ukrainian, as well as European and US systems on Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

    "I do not have information that there is reliable data about the origin," Peskov told reporters Wednesday.

    He added that no serious disruptions have been registered in Russia, saying "state and corporate level protection systems are operating fairly effectively."

    "The presidential Internet resource is stable," Peskov said.

    Earlier in June, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that hackers could be anywhere in the world, and that Russia on a state level has not engaged in such activities.
