Russia has been the most aggressive player in the meddling with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, carrying on with the special operations against the United States. Christopher Wray, the FBI Director said that as quoted by NBC.
Holding a speech at the opening of Aspen security forum in Colorado on July 18, Wray confirmed the results of the probe of the U.S. special services into Russia's interference in the U.S. presidential race in 2016.
'My view has not changed, which is that Russia attempted to interfere with the last election and that it continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day,' he said.
As is known, on Monday, U.S. leader Donald Trump met with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The U.S. president doubted in the result of the investigation; later, he said he did not believe that Russian measures against U.S. democracy continued. Then, Trump and his press secretary rebuked these comments, claiming semantic errors and misunderstanding; Trump said he agreed with the conclusions of the U.S. military intelligence, saying that Russia continues to go into operations against the U.S.
