Wikileaks slam U.S. intelligence report on Russian involvement in presidential elections
Special services made conclusions, some of which are ‘based on watching TV and reading tweets’, the organization’s experts say
Wikileaks commented on the recent report made by U.S. intelligence; the experts paid special attention to the section where the special services comment on the role of the pro-Russian media and political figures in the Kremlin’s involvement in the U.S. election campaign.
According to the Wikileaks’s tweet, the de-classified report contains rather ‘funny clause that the actual report is allegedly based on watching TV and reading posts in Twitter’.
The organization says that the certain conclusions made by U.S. intelligence are based on actions of politicians loyal to the Kremlin, pro-Kremlin media and other state-run media used by the Russian government to send various kinds of messages.
The actual report was released by the U.S. intelligence in two versions – the classified one and the public one; it says that Russian president Putin allegedly charged his sidekicks to organize an influence campaign aimed at the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, which would eventually undermine positions of Democrats and personally Hillary Clinton.
The document’s authors say that the Russian side resorted to black ops and used opportunities of the state-run media and pro-Kremlin Internet shills.
