Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've certainly argued for years that the Russian hacking threat was only marginally more real than Havana syndrome. I still remember the NATO cyber center that got set up in the Baltics after they had suffered a "Russian"cyberattack for which they arrested one student after a few months. And it hasn't gotten all that more plausible since then. You can certainly claim that the Russians have attacked the electoral system and the electrical grid, but apparently you can also claim that the Russians shot you with a gun that causes hangover symptoms on your way back from an all-night bender with Congress nodding sagely and handing you barrels of cash.
Of course western actors are going to be better at this, you could easily drown the whole Russian surface navy in their budgets and I don't think I've seen even the most paranoid claim the Russians ever pulled off anything comparable to that Iranian enrichment plant.
