December 30, 2016 -- With major elections coming up in France, Germany, the Netherlands and possibly Italy, Europe is preparing for a campaign of cyberattacks and misinformation similar to that seen in the recent U.S. election.

Russia called the penalties a clumsy yet aggressive attempt to “harm Russian-American ties.”
