US will Direct $ 290 Million to Counter Russia

The US budget for fiscal 2021 (starting October 1) provides $ 290 million to counter Russian influence. Although in February, US President Donald Trump proposed to allocate $ 700 million for this purpose.

      $ 300 million will be allocated to counter China. The law was approved by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump. The money is proposed to be allocated for "counteracting the influence of Russia and its attempts to sow distrust of democratic institutions around the world." In addition, the budget prescribes a ban on financing activities that may contribute to the "strategic goals of the Russian Federation" and threaten the interests of US national security.

      Washington also allocates money to support programs for the development of democracies in the Russian Federation, countries of Europe, Eurasia and Central Asia. The ban on financing any activity to recognize Russia's sovereignty over Crimea is being extended.
