“President Joe Biden was presented with a number of options for the United States to conduct massive cyberattacks aimed at undermining Russia’s ability to support its military operations in Ukraine,” the NBC website said.
The decision on cyber attacks can be made against the background of Russia’s military operation against Ukraine. Most Western countries have declared their readiness to support Kiev in this situation.
According to the TV channel, experts from intelligence and military departments suggest “using American cyber weapons” on a scale never seen before. Among the proposed options are disruption of Internet connections throughout Russia, power outages and interference in the operation of railway switches “to prevent Russia from replenishing its forces.”
According to their information, the final decision has not yet been made, but such a scale of the alleged attacks was not previously possible.
