Eugene Rumer, a former intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the U.S. National Intelligence Council, told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that Russia’s support of left-wing Occupy Wall Street protests is a “perfect example” of the Kremlin’s willingness to play both sides in U.S. politics.
“Occupy Wall Street was a genuine movement on the left, but it certainly serves the interests of Russian propaganda to play it up as a major challenge, as something representing a major fault line in our society,” Rumer said.
“It drives the message that the United States is in decline. The United States is in crisis,” Rumer added.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) brought up Russia Today’s promotion of the far left protests at a hearing on Russian interference. Collins described Russia Today as “an organ of the Russian government.”
