Bilateral US-Russia expert talks underway, Ryabkov confirms

Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Ryabkov has confirmed that there have already been ‘three formal rounds of cyber talks and one contact’ between USA and Russia, since the bilateral expert talks on cyber were suggested at the Geneva summit. 

Moscow has expressed interest in maintaining regular cybersecurity dialogue with Washington, but only if there is a broad agenda, featuring not only ransomware, but also ‘attempts to influence drones, unmanned systems through internet technologies and some AI elements, out of the control of those managing these systems’.
