Russian disinformation is extensive and growing, with major efforts in Europe, the United States and other parts of the world. The content of Russia's campaign is increasingly understood, but the motives behind it are often simplified. CNA's Kasey Stricklin explains Russia's efforts, detailing how it fits into Russia's worldview and broader strategic concerns.

Consolidation of power.

Power corrupts. Absolutely.

All first world countries use disinformation in my humble opinion.

They do it for positioning and power.

Why Does Russia Use Disinformation?

Because the propaganda model is the best way to understand the way we brought ourselves to fight the largest war the world has ever seen, that traced the outline for the second half of the 20th Century.

The epidemiological model may be the defining model for the 21st century.

Because it works. Look at Trump. He's using it to create his very own Fourth Reich (empire). But first he has make up . . . an "enemy of the people."

He's tried several already . . . brown people, Iran, Democrats, the media, immigrants, etc.
But nothing seems to quite grab the public's imagination.

He's probably not doing it right. Typical Trump. He just needs more time. He's counting on another chance after November.

Why? It is effective and will result in bad things happening in the West. Want proof? Trump - US. UK. Hungary. Poland. Ukraine. Germany etc. In some shape of form Russian propaganda and disinformation has brought about dissent, nationalism and authoritarianism in all these countries. Institutions will not protect democracy, they will be corrupted. Just look at the rise of the 3rd Reich. You can see it reflected in Hungary and Poland today and yes even in USA. Trump is destroying the institutions and norms that have kept the US a free society.

Why did Joseph Goebbels use misinformation.

Hitler invented fake news.

Humpy is just using the laws of the land to take care of himself and his family.

What is so wrong with that?

Oh yeah. He is the President. He should be more concerned with the wealth of the Nation. Not his own.

Because Putin is a genius who was a KGB agent. He knows russia couldnt defeat america militarily, so he decided to bring down america from within using america's biggest weakness - the republican party and gullible morons.

    I'm saying the opinions of deep state garbage who want eternal war footing with Russia to justify their existence should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Speaking of cults, the filth you've got in bed with over the past two years for no other reason than to further your confirmation bias on Russiagate nonsense is truly pathetic.

    So you think it's just an OPINION that russia uses disinfomation to tear america apart?

    Russiagate was all true. Just because your entire party sold out all their ethics and patriotism to protect your cult messiah doesn't mean he hasn't done putin's bidding since day 1.

    Whenever I read comments such as yours, I marvel at the insularity of your views. Your write as if Russia exists merely as a annoyance to Trump, rather than as a fallen world power with an agenda, objectives and policies of it's own.

    Try to step outside of your bubble and look at the world from Russia's and Putin's perspective and tell me which parts of the article do not then ring true.

    Don't be a cutie pie!

    Ok. Fine. Lying to the hoi polloi has been here forever. But Hitler and Goebbels perfected it.

    Perfected it? Rank amateurs that killed themselves.

    Ever heard of Christianity? That's where the where Propaganda comes from. Propagating the Faith.
