President Joe Biden has told President Vladimir Putin the US will take “any necessary action” to stop cyber-attacks from Russia.
A reporter asked Mr Biden after the hour-long phone call if Russia would face consequences, and he said: “Yes.
But Moscow denied US claims that they had contacted the Russians repeatedly about the cyber-attacks in the past month.
Friday’s call between Mr Putin and Mr Biden follows their meeting last month in Geneva.It also comes amid an increase in attacks, including one that disabled 1,500 companies this month.
An unnamed senior US official denied Russia’s claim, telling newsmen the Biden administration had made “multiple, specific requests for action”.
