Kremlin Playbook Spotlight
The Kremlin Playbook Spotlight is an occasional series that offers a visual and contextual snapshot of the workings of Russian malign influence in Europe. Based on our groundbreaking 2016 research The Kremlin Playbook: Understanding Russian Influence in Central and Eastern Europe, the Kremlin Playbook Spotlight will examine timely examples of Russian malign influence—from Russian military coercion to financial influence through complex money-laundering schemes in Europe—to educate our readers about the evolving nature of Russian influence, and build momentum toward the early 2019 release of our second report, The Kremlin Playbook 2: The Enablers Edition. This new research will examine select European countries that facilitate and amplify Russian economic influence operations, as well as continue to analyze the methodology of Russian influence operations across Europe.
Intelligence agencies have confirmed Russian influence operations continue unabated. The Kremlin Playbook Spotlight underscores the most potent examples https://t.co/wnUem6twPL pic.twitter.com/DSJgr0xkIs— CSIS (@CSIS) July 19, 2018
