The United States has declassified part of its intelligence report on “secret political financing”; other countries from Russia. This was announced at a briefing by a senior official of the US administration, Reuters reports.
According to the official, US intelligence has found that Russia has spent more than $300 million since 2014 to increase its influence abroad.

RBC sent a request to the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly denied allegations of interference in the internal affairs of other countries. “You know that Russia has never accepted interference in its internal affairs, never does it itself, categorically opposes when this happens,” — Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
The United States accused Russia, among other things, of interfering in the elections. In June, CNN also reported on Washington's concern that Moscow might interfere in the House and Senate elections due in early November.
Peskov called such accusations unfounded, explaining such reports from Washington as “manic stubbornness.” “We see that the Russian card is in the red corner of the desk of all Washington politicians during the electoral campaign,” — noted the presidential press secretary back in 2016.
