The UK’s top intelligence services have called Moscow “formidable adversaries”.

The report cited evidence that the Kremlin waged “information warfare on a massive scale” after the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines’ jet MH17 over Ukraine in 2014. Although Russia’s role in the deaths of the 298 passengers on board is widely suspected, the UK’s recent comments are part of a wider initiative to hold Moscow to account for its increasingly aggressive behaviour. Meanwhile, in the US, special counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation into Russian involvement in last year’s election.
