Putin called the “attack” on Russian media an “attack on freedom of speech.” We will remind that earlier the leadership of the pro-Kremlin TV channel RT said that the US Justice Department demanded that RT register by November 13 as a foreign agent. The Russian side intends to challenge this requirement in an American court.

In turn this week at the Capitol, the House and Senate Committees on Armed Forces paid particular attention to countering Russian information and cyber threats, as well as Moscow’s attempts to interfere in the US election process..

In particular, legislators propose to introduce restrictions on the distribution of Russian video content by providers in cable networks, “which is owned, controlled or financed by the government of the Russian Federation.”.

According to lawmakers, the head of the Pentagon should develop a comprehensive strategy to counter Russian propaganda and Kremlin interventions using cyber attacks, disinformation and hybrid warfare..
