Moscow was probably behind interruptions in Latvia's mobile communications network before Russia's war games last month, in an apparent test of its cyberattack tools, Baltic and NATO officials said, based on early intelligence of the drills. Russia is suspected of interrupting the mobile network along Latvia's western coast for seven hours on Aug. 30, NATO diplomats and Latvian security officials said. U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, who heads U.S. Army forces in Europe, said Russia had developed "a significant electronic warfare capability" over the past three years.From the Arctic to the Black Sea, Moscow exercised some 100,000 troops in a series of interlocking drills that some NATO officials said tested Russia's ability to wage war on the West, NATO officials said.NATO officials also challenged the scenario publicized by Moscow, saying Russia played out war games against countries facing ethnic tensions to its west and that attacked Belarus.
