Russia's defense minister has said the alleged spies were on a "routine trip" to The Hague, where the OPCW is based. Dutch authorities claim four Russian intelligence workers tried to hack the chemical weapons watchdog.
After the UK and Australia accused Moscow of worldwide hacking attacks, the Netherlands has revealed an attempted attack on the UN chemical weapons watchdog. Russia says its accusers are living in a fantasy.
