A recent report from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has a shocking implication about the relationship between Russia and the West, and how it has become a political issue in the U.S.
Citing a source familiar with the information, CBT has obtained evidence showing how the Kremlin has created a “fake news” site—and made millions by making money off the information they have disseminated. The site, RT.com, is a Russian state-sponsored propaganda outlet that has been at the center of the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign against U.S. President Donald Trump.

Last week, the Washington Post reported that Russian intelligence had attempted to penetrate some 50 U.S. banks and financial companies, a cyber-espionage scheme whose real motivation might be to make financial institutions less cooperative with federal agencies investigating possible collusion between the Russian government and Russian operatives.
One Russian intelligence officer is accused of working with the FBI to obtain a Russian company’s financial documents by tricking the business into divulging information about its U.S. operations that it knows could damage the company’s competitive position.
