Dominic Raab vows to call out Russia despite vaccine hack denial

BRITAIN will tell the world of the Kremlin’s ‘reprehensible behaviour’ in trying to steal our coronavirus vaccine research, Dominic Raab has declared.

The foreign secretary said ‘you will see us holding Russia to account’ after the UK, US and Canada accused spies of using malware to mine information.

But Russia’s ambassador to the UK Andrei Kelin (pictured) insisted there was ‘no sense’ in the allegations. He told the BBC: ‘To attribute any kind of computer hackers to any country, it is impossible.’

Speaking on Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday, Mr Raab said he was ‘absolutely confident’ that Moscow had mounted a cyber attack.

Shadow foreign secretary Lisa Nandy said the Labour Party had ‘got it wrong’ on Russia, as it ‘let them off the hook’ after novichok was used in Salisbury.
