Brus­sels: The Euro­pean Union im­posed sanc­tions on Rus­sia’s mil­i­tary in­tel­li­gence chief Igor Kostyukov and Dmitry Badin yes­ter­day, ac­cus­ing them of steal­ing An­gela Merkel’s emails in a 2015 hack­ing at­tack.

Badin is ac­cused of or­ches­trat­ing the at­tack. The sanc­tions also tar­get the so­called 85th Main Cen­tre, or Cen­tre 85, the GRU unit used to carry it out.

Rus­sia in May de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tions as a ‘‘hack­neyed story’’. — Reuters
