    As #U.S. President Joe #Biden prepares to confront #Russian President Vladimir #Putin over #ransomware gangs in his country that twice recently targeted critical American infrastructure, his administration is publicly blaming the Russian government for allowing those #criminals to profit without prosecution. The #FBI has not disclosed any evidence showing Russian government involvement in the attacks on U.S. fuel transporter #ColonialPipeline Co and meatpacker #JBS SA of Brazil, and Putin says the idea that Russia was responsible is absurd.
