A special unit in the British cyber forces is called JTRIG, and it is this unit’s ‘specialists’ who quite often carry out propagandistic cyber operations, which have recently most often been directed against Russia. Among these are the anti-Russian fuss around Skripal poisoning, groundless accusations of Russia’s alleged involvement in the crash of the Malaysian plane MH-17 over Donetsk, and accusations of Moscow’s aggressive actions in Syria.
Washington hopes that the end of Putin’s Presidency in 2024 will cause disorder in Russia, his successor will not have that power and firmness. In this situation, a new possibility for the partition of the Russian Federation appears, as in the times of the weak and submissive Boris Yeltsin.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative accusing the United States in Russophobia and aggressive anti-Russian plans and actions based on a conspiracy theory.
