Estonian attack - cyber tank outside Parliament and economic sanctions announced

European and U.S. leaders have repeatedly accused Russia of using its energy resources as a weapon against its neighbors. Russia has always denied it, citing different technical reasons for energy supply halts.

Now Estonia Russian oil firms are re-routing a quarter of their refined products exports away from ports in Estonia and Russia's railways halted deliveries reports Reuters.

This is set againts what Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip called 'continuing cyber-attacks from the servers of Russian state authorities' a few minutes ago.

The Russioans have a cyber tank on the lawn outside the Tallinn parliament and now have economic sanctions in place.

I guess that we are still waiting for the EU to imagine this is not happening ahead of a nice long week end break.
