All the countries part of the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing alliance — the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand— have made formal statements accusing the Russian Federation of orchestrating the NotPetya ransomware outbreak.

The UK was first to pin the attacks on Russia, earlier this week, when Foreign Office Minister Lord Ahmad said in a press release that an intelligence agency part of Russia's military had created and deployed the NotPetya ransomware in Ukraine, from where it accidentally spread worldwide.

The UK's statement caused a stir, but the country didn't stand alone for long, as the next day, February 15, the White House came out with a similar announcement.
