MOSCOW, May 24 (RAPSI) — Hackers will try to compromise the voting process and hinder large political actors to communicate with voters, First Deputy Chair of Russia’s Civic Chamber Commission on Development of the Information Community Alexander Malkevich believes. 

The first target of hacker attacks is United Russia, the largest political party in the country, the expert said pointing out that the operation of a website the United Russia created for its primary elections was disrupted on Monday.

The civic activist believes that by the Single Election Day attacks can only become more frequent, especially against major players in the pre-election race.

The incident, Malkevich says, is an example of the digital threats that he has been constantly talking about.
