Throughout the EU and UK’s disasterous Brexit talks one theme has been recurrent. The  UK has expressed a wish for the EU, which is much more advanced than the UK to attack Russia on their behalf with a sophisticated Cyber Attack.


This morning the Neatherlands didn’t just that. The Neatherlands claimed Russia’s intelligence forces had “gained access to the EU’s nuclear watchdog facilities in a sophisticated hack”. In response the Neatherlands launched their own attack aimed at Russia’s nuclear facilities.


It is understood that whilst the Neatherlands managed to revoke access from the Russian hackers their attempts to hack the Russian facilities failed.


Russia accuses the UK’s GCHQ of “multiple daily hacking attempts” on their civilian, medical, military and transport systems.


Only days ago the UK sent 800 special forces troops to the Norwegian Artic to attempt to claim part of the Artic sea floor territory for the UK. Which is currently under Russian and Canadian sovereignty.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
