Kremlin Assault on Democracy in 21 Nations Detailed

Russia's far-ranging intrusions to undermine democracy in Europe and the United States are detailed in a new report by Democratic Party staffers of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. This disturbingly detailed 206-page report on Russian interference relies heavily on investigative reporting by independent media, including GIJN members OCCRP, Re:Baltica and ProPublica. The report describes Kremlin use of state foundations, NGOs, think tanks, political extremists, the Russian Orthodox Church, the energy industry, organized crime and corruption.

Kremlin Nervous Over New ICIJ Report

The Kremlin is attempting to deflect a report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists even before it has even been published. Officials are warning that ICIJ is preparing an "information attack" on President Vladimir Putin, threatening legal action, and hinting darkly that the award-winning journalism consortium is a tool of "special services." In recent years, ICIJ has specialized in exposing secret offshore holdings. What could be making the Kremlin so nervous?
