They may be Russian, but they're not connected to the Russian state from what I've seen and what they've said publicly. I'd assume that ransomware groups will be getting significant attention going forward and it was already probably on the uptick (they've really grown in the past couple years) .

In a nation where the head of state routinely has political opposition killed or incarcerated its a virtual certainty that criminal organizations operate with license from the government.  Even as proxies of that government.

 

Russian hackers are either operating at the behest of Putin, or with his blessing.

 

This is likely Vlad testing Biden and the US.  Searching for just the right set of dominoes.

This has Putin’s fingerprints all over it. Have the 17 Intelligence agencies weighed in yet?

 

Biden needs to get tough on Putin. So what if his son is bed with Russia.

If they're even Russian. Also seems like a group just doing it for money as they're not new and are a little unconventional (they gave some of their previous ransom to charity in the past). Maybe Putin is involved, but it's hard to say at this point. The only evidence of Russia anything is that the group posted on a Russian language hacker forum.

You have to wonder what about the US Trump gave up during those meetings where it was just him and Vlad.

 

Trump would sell this country down the river in a NY minute if he thought it would benefit him somehow.
