Russian Propaganda Targets US Cyber Warfare

The year is 1984, and Ronald Regan and Mikhail Gorbachev faceoff over nukes and the fate of the world…

The year is 2019, and what is old is new again.

The US strategic programs utilized during the Soviet era and the Cold War are making a huge comeback. An example would be QRHELPFUL, the program used by the CIA to install a western style of governance in Poland. A new Russian law taking effect in November 2019, is meant to further isolate western sources via the Russian internet. The law’s supporters are targeting Russian citizens with fear mongering and claiming the US is going on the offensive. When in reality the US is securing counter measures due to Russian information warfare attacks on the West.
