Disclosure Russian cyber groups are trying to influence the upcoming US elections

According to Microsoft, Russian hackers have become more active over the past 45 days. At the same time, this activity is still less compared to the 2020 American elections. Reuters reports this.

Messages are distributed through traditional media and social networks by at least 70 cyber groups. Accounts linked to Russia spread controversial content, such as criticizing American support for Ukraine. Moreover, hackers spread disinformation in different languages and allegedly in the name of a “whistleblower” or “journalist”.

The fake messages are then published on a number of websites, including DC Weekly, Miami Chronical and Intel Drop. They write about this in the Center for Strategic Communications and Security at the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine. It should be noted that the mentioned resources are fake, created by Russians and, accordingly, information is distributed to them in the interests of Russia. Previously, we analyzed the manipulation of Russian propaganda, saying that the West and PACE are “interfering” in the Russian presidential elections.
