US President Joe Biden told reporters in Michigan that investigations were ongoing following the latest ransomware attack. Mr Biden admitted that the US Government is not sure whether Russia had any involvement. However, President Biden claimed he had told Vladimir Putin that if they were involved the US would respond.

This is cyber attack is reportedly the working of the same group that hit meat supplier JBS foods last spring.

President Biden said: “First of all, we are not sure of who it is.

“The Director of the intelligence community is going to give me a deep dive on what has happened.

“I will no better tomorrow and if it is either with the knowledge of and or a consequence of Russia then I told Putin we will respond.

“We are not certain, the initial thinking was that it was not the Russian Government.”

The Russia-based hacking group REvil, which was blamed by the FBI for the ransomware attack on JBS has been pointed to by security experts as likely being behind the recent ransomware attack. 

Despite these comments from President Biden, many commentators have argued that Russia and China believe him to be weak.

Former Tory leader and current MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith has attacked President Biden for not combatting Russia and China’s aggression.

Sir Iain Smith told the Telegraph: “Russia and China are now working together in a very aggressive way.

“They are doing this because they think they have America on the run.

“They think Biden is weak. He goes to Russia with all his rhetoric and comes back a pussycat.

“Putin is laughing his head off.”

Sir Iain continued: “Biden isn’t behaving and showing his administration is strong on any of this stuff.”

Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014 which had not been recognised by most countries.

Sir Iain explained how Russia’s posturing in eastern Ukraine and China’s “bullying” of Taiwan show that they have been testing Mr Biden since he took office.
