EU imposes sanctions


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
