The Director of the CIA told about a new round of “subversive activities” of Russia
The Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo expects that Russia will meddle in the mid-term elections in the U.S. Congress, scheduled for autumn 2018. He stated this in an interview with the BBC.
“Of course, I certainly expect that Russia will continue to try and do this, but I am sure that America will be able to hold free and fair elections, and that we will resist quite successfully, and their impact on our elections will not be significant,” said Pompeo.
In his opinion, Russia has reduced the intensity of attempts to conduct subversive activities in the United States and Europe.
Pompeo noticed that recently, the CIA helped the Russian special services prevented a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg, but the relationship has not improved.
“Consider Russia mainly as the enemy, sharing the concern of many European countries about its subversive activities,” said Pompeo.
In the midterm elections should be elected the new composition of the house of representatives and a third of the Senate.
