Following statements made by a number of larger nations, it appears that Latvia has been moved to speak up as well. Latvia named Russia’s GRU as being responsible for a number of espionage attacks on government systems, as well as a number of intrusions into defense systems.

The Latvian government would not give any details about the duration of any of the attacks nor about the level of damage cause by any of them.
