Will someone say "sorry" to Kremlin?

I was forwarded this message today:

Estonia fines man for DDoS attacks

Authorities in Estonia fined a 20-year-old Tallinn resident for participating in cyber attacks on government servers, paralyzing them during the spring riots in the capital, local media reported on Wednesday.

Read the whole story on the Internet, but more importantly – does that mean that last year accusations by western experts that Kremlin is behind the cyber attack will be retracted:

Russia accused of unleashing cyberwar to disable Estonia
A three-week wave of massive cyber-attacks on the small Baltic country of Estonia, the first known incidence of such an assault on a state, is causing alarm across the western alliance, with Nato urgently examining the offensive and its implications… Nato has dispatched some of its top cyber-terrorism experts to Tallinn to investigate and to help the Estonians beef up their electronic defences… etc. – read the whole story at the Guardian.

I bet they won’t be, and then a piece of advise for the western journalists and experts – don’t be surprised next time the Russians don’t trust what you say, or get upset by what you write. It’s a normal reaction.
