The United States will commit $ 290 million this fiscal year to “counter Russian influence.”

This is stated in the package of bills on financing the work of the government in fiscal 2021, which was approved on Sunday by US President Donald Trump.

The State Department appropriations section provides for the allocation of “$ 290 million to counter the influence of Russia and its attempts to sow distrust of democratic institutions around the world.”

At the same time, $ 300 million is allocated for “counteracting the influence of China”.
