FBI agent says Russia uses cyber attacks against US, possible Minnesota victims


The Ukraine war is half a world away, but a high-ranking FBI agent told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the effects could be hitting much closer to home than you think.

FBI agent, Michael Paul, told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS in a one-on-one interview three weeks ago that “Russia is using that [the Ukraine war] as sort of an impetus to, again, conduct attacks on entities in the United States.”

Paul made that statement, and others, on Aug. 3 when he was the Special Agent-in-Charge of the Minneapolis Field Office. He has since been promoted to Assistant Director of the Operational Technology Division at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C.
