In my latest piece for Medium, I provide a quick read on the fundamental objectives and methods to Russian information warfare. (I never use the common term "meddling" to describe the Russian actions -- meddling is when I wander into the kitchen and start messing around with what's on the stove. This is far more serious).
The actions of Russia's intelligence services and troll farms aligned with Russian government objectives did not stop on Election Day 2016 in America -- they are ongoing, both in the United States and also against targets in Europe and elsewhere. For this reason, it is important for every American to have an understanding of what is going on.
I hope you enjoy the piece.
