Reuters reported that hackers stole more than 2 billion rubles ($31 million) from correspondent accounts at the Russian central bank, the bank said on Friday. 

“We can’t say exactly when, but we can say today it was stolen,”Ekaterina Glebova, an official in the central bank’s press office, told The Wall Street Journal.

Central bank official Artyom Sychyov discussed the losses at a briefing, saying that the hackers had attempted a cyberheist of about 5 billion rubles.
