Russian Think Tank Had Plans to Sway US Election

Russian Think Tank Had Plans to Sway US Election

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump have been named among the 100 most influential people in 2017, according to TIME Magazine list released on Thursday, Sputnik reports.

The documents obtained by US intelligence from the RISS did not mention the DNC hacking, according to the officials who spoke to Reuters.

As the campaign progressed and polls indicated Clinton was likely to win the election, a second plan was drafted to use the propaganda apparatus of the government to undermine U.S citizens' faith in their electoral process. It said Russian Federation should halt its pro-Trump propaganda and focus on efforts to undermine Clinton's potential presidency and the legitimacy of the USA electoral system by fomenting suspicions of voter fraud.

The successor to the Russian president can only be determined by the Russian people through a free, democratic election, Vladimir Putin said.

The Institute and Kremlin did not respond to Reuters' request for comment.

According to four of the sources, the June strategy paper expanded on Putin's earlier strategy from March 2016, in which Moscow allegedly instructed state-backed media outlets such as Sputnik News and RT to produce more pro-Trump content.

Putin has denied interfering in the US election.

Russian Federation believes there is a significant chance the U.S.is going to attack North Korea, and it will go badly for the North, resulting in millions of refugees streaming out of the country.

Nonetheless, the new CVS partnership is the beginning point of enhancing the successful provision of healthcare services. "The launch of this partnership will enable VA to provide more care for Veterans in their neighborhoods", said Dr.

"And by the way, it's not the first pack of lies we're hearing from "sources in USA official circles", the spokesperson added.

The propaganda had the main goal to encourage Americans that a president who has a better opinion about Russian Federation is the best choice, in comparison to the Obama administration.

The clever scam is related to the 2016 presidential election and is also meant to undermine the elector's trust when it comes to the American electoral system, reports Reuters.

Vladimir Putin who inherited a crisis situation from his predecessor managed to stabilize the country, preserve Russian statehood, start the process of exiting from the economic crisis and strengthen Russia's global positions, Gorbachev wrote. The officials said the hacking was a covert intelligence operation run separately out of the Kremlin. Five officials told Reuters the institute is the Kremlin's in-house foreign policy think tank.

It was not immediately clear how the documents were obtained by US officials from the RISS. After Reshetnikov retired from the institute in January, Putin named Fradkov as his replacement.

Asmolov, from the Russian Far Eastern Institute, warned that in the event of full-scale war "hungry asylum seekers will flood into Russia".

Some Russia media officials protested President Trump's move to give his daughter, Ivanka, a position in the White House.
