Biden presented with options for cyberattacks against Russia
US President Joe Biden has been presented with a variety of possibilities for disrupting Russia’s capacity to sustain military operations in Ukraine.
According to intelligence officials who spoke to NBC News, possibilities include interrupting internet access throughout Russia, cutting off power, and tampering with railroad switches.
Officials are debating the legal authorities under which the attacks would take place — whether they would be covert action or clandestine military activity. According to Emily Horne, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, ‘This report is wildly off base and does not reflect what is actually being discussed in any shape or form’.
