Russian hackers targeted this year's Olympic Games with the aim of disrupting them, UK officials say.

Axar.az informs that, the Foreign Office said the GRU, Russian military intelligence, had carried out "cyber reconnaissance" against officials and organisations involved in the Tokyo Games.

That included organisers, sponsors, and logistics providers.

Officials did not, however, specify the nature or extent of the cyber-attacks in detail.

The attacks took place before the Tokyo Olympics was postponed until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the attacks were "cynical and reckless".

"We condemn them in the strongest possible terms," he said. "The UK will continue to work with our allies to call out and counter future malicious cyber-attacks."
