Russian Institute for strategic studies (RISS), controlled by Russian President Vladimir Putin has devised a plan which was to lead to the victory of Donald trump in the presidential election in the United States and undermine the confidence of Americans in the electoral system of the country, reports Reuters, citing three current and four former U.S. officials.
Reuters sources said that us intelligence agencies made the following conclusions on the basis of two confidential documents, compiled by RISI and at the disposal of US intelligence agencies.
The first document is a strategic analysis, conducted in June last year and circulating in the Russian government, however, is not addressed to a specific official. The document provides recommendations on the initiation of a propaganda campaign on social networks and Federal Russian media. The campaign encourages American voters to vote for the candidate who would choose a softer approach towards the Kremlin than the Obama administration.
The second document, dated October last year and circulated in a similar way, suggests that the most likely winner of the U.S. presidential race is Hillary Clinton. For this reason, the document is recommended to stop the campaign in support of trump and initiate a campaign to discredit the electoral system of the United States to undermine the reputation of Clinton.
Sources Reuters reported, as classified documents became available to U.S. intelligence. U.S. intelligence in response to a request by Reuters declined to comment. The sources of the news Agency claim that these documents led the Obama administration to the conclusion that Moscow initiated a campaign called «fake news» and made a hacking attack on the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
