The activities of the RAND Corporation are very dangerous as it develops the most aggressive US expansionist plans, openly promoting American interference into domestic affairs of sovereign countries. The legal form of the RAND (non-profit think-tank) provides it with much broader freedom of actions in comparison to the state institutions – it makes the RAND more dangerous than the CIA and other special services. The recent RAND publications show that the American neoconservative circles (the “hawks”) are ready to destabilize half of the World in order to achieve their version of the US interests.
Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the secret elites (CIA, Global Government, Soros, etc.), which promote Russophobic policies aimed at the destruction or weakening of Russia. See examples of similar messages on the secret elites promoting Russophobia here, here and here. RAND Corporation is a large American non-profit global policy think tank, which is financed by the US government, private corporations, universities, and individual endowments. Besides security and international issues, RAND has numerous areas of expertise, such as civil and criminal justice, education, health, infrastructure, energy, environment, population and regional studies, science and technology, social welfare, etc. The RAND regularly publishes reports on the military and security aspects of relations with Russia (see the recent report “Extending Russia. Competing from Advantageous Ground”). These reports cannot be called “aggressive expansionist plans” – they are providing an analysis of the ways in which the USA can react to the unfriendly actions of the Russian authorities.
