Summit progress: cybersecurity and diplomacy

After the summit, Putin said that the United States and Russia will begin consultations on cybersecurity, as "Both parties have to assume certain obligations there."

“We believe that cyberspace is extraordinarily important.

In general, and in particular for the United States, and to the same extent for Russia, ”Putin said in response to a question from CNN's Matthew Chance.

Although Putin admitted that the United States was the victim of the highest number of cyber attacks, he assured that Russia was also a victim.

“We come across this every year.

For example, one of the health systems in a very important part of Russia was attacked.

So it means that this work is being coordinated, ”Putin said.

“In the United States, I don't think the government is particularly interested in organizing that or investigating it.

All they do is make innuendo.

What we need are expert consultations with each other.

We agreed that, in principle, Russia is ready for that, "Putin added.

Meanwhile, Putin said that the US and Russian ambassadors will return to their diplomatic posts and assume their duties.
