In the United States, a new counterintelligence strategy for 2020–2022 has been adopted, which poses five key tasks for the American counterintelligence at once. The document calls Russia and China the first and main threat to the United States. The strategy was published last week by the National Center for Counterintelligence and Security on Wednesday.

According to the document, Russia and China are aimed at confronting the United States, opposing Washington around the world and therefore are the most important threats to the United States.

The number of players targeting the United States is growing. Russia and China operate around the world, use all the instruments of national power against the United States and have a wide range of modern intelligence capabilities.

- said the US counterintelligence.

Other traditional threats to national security have traditionally included Cuba, Iran, and North Korea, as well as the Hezbollah movement, the Islamic State and Al Qaeda banned in Russia. In addition, the strategy refers to transnational criminal communities and other organized crime groups.

Meanwhile, in the new draft budget for next year, the White House has planned to counter Russia $ 700 million and another 24 million to combat "Russian propaganda and misinformation." This is stated in a document published on the White House website.

The budget provides $ 0,7 billion to help Europe, Eurasia and Central Asia strengthen common security; protecting the territorial integrity of US allies. (...) The budget also provides for appropriations of $ 24 million for the Global Engagement Center, created to counter Russian propaganda and misinformation

- the document says.

        But blaming Stalin for cooperation with Germany before the war is still considered good form.

          It would be possible to cover Russia publicly with Russian obscenities and this would be done, but so far it is considered not decent, but everything goes to that.

    that’s what it’s now officially called the bribery of American and European media to form a picture favorable to Washington

      Bribery is when secretly and in one hand. The same people say without hesitation that they directly finance exactly that picture of the world that is beneficial to them. That is, they form public opinion, do not spare money for it, but propaganda is only in "totalitarian" Russia.

    We were the main threat to them during the Soviet Union. American priorities do not change, just in connection with the current balance of power, China added to us. Cuba, Iran, North Korea were also considered a threat back in the 70s. Therefore, it is not surprising and not very upsetting - the usual everyday life of the confrontation of countries with a different vision of the world.

    On the one hand, it’s unpleasant that you were assigned to the main opponents, and, therefore, the goal. On the other hand, the recognition that you are the main opponent is the recognition of your undoubted merits and successes by your opponent. What can not but please everyone NORMAL people.

    Here are the current guardians for “free Russia” broadcasting that the West and the State Department are fighting (with their efforts) for a democratic Russia, free from the remnants of totalitarianism, Stalinism, communism and Bolshevism. But all of the above in Russia is present and operates on a completely competitive democratic basis with capitalism. But who then has the West been fighting for many centuries? With free and independent Orthodox Russia and Russians!
