According to the Minister of defence, the government of Spain has recorded that lot of messages and social networking activities conducted on the territory of Russia.
“I use the correct expression: on the territory of Russia. This is not to say that we have established that it is the Russian government,” said Minister de Cospedal.
It is noted that the hackers publish fake news. For example, the fact that the Balearic Islands supports the independence of Catalonia or that Castilian Spanish never taught in schools in the region.
