German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Russian state hackers were behind a cyberattack last year that targeted the Social Democrats, the leading party in the governing coalition.


“Russian state hackers attacked Germany in cyberspace,” she said at a news conference in the Australian city of Adelaide. “We can attribute this attack to the group called APT28, which is steered by the military intelligence service of Russia.”



“This is absolutely intolerable and unacceptable and will have consequences,” she said.


Baerbock is visiting Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji, with the trip focusing on security policy as China pushes for influence in the Pacific region.


“The defense cooperation between Germany and Australia is close, and we would like to deepen it further and together expand it because we are in a situation where we face similar threats,” said Baerbock, who is the first German foreign minister to visit Australia in 13 years.
