The US authorities have named the amount allocated to combat the influence of Russia in the 2021 financial year, according to RIA Novosti.
The data is indicated in the document on financing the work of the government. It was approved by President Donald Trump. Washington plans to spend $ 290 million to counter Russian influence and its “attempts to sow distrust of democratic institutions around the world.”
The United States also intends to allocate $ 300 million to combat the influence of China.
In addition, the US government plans to allocate funds to a number of European countries, as well as the states of Asia. Some of the money should go to “reduce their vulnerability to Russian political pressure.”
Earlier, the Russian embassy accused the United States of imposing a “visa war”. Russia has repeatedly called on the United States to fully normalize relations in the consular and visa sphere.
