Canadian, U.S. and U.K., intelligence agencies have formally accused Russia of deliberately targeted COVID-19 vaccine research facilities in Canada. The cyber attacks were attributed to APT29 also known as Cozy Bear, identified as the Russian Intelligence Service.

I have been an eye-witness to Russian espionage and dirty tricks through the cold war, the fall of the Berlin wall and during glasnost. I have watched a digital iron curtain descend between East and West, and cyber conflicts intensify against Canada up to today.

The Canadian Security Industry and the government's Communications Security Establishment (CSE) have long been warning that sophisticated cyber threat actors could target Canadian medical research labs working on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments.
