Russia, through an information campaign, is attempting to manipulate domestic events in the U.S. to sow internal instability and hinder political debates regarding further military aid to Ukraine, according to a report by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

Additionally, ISW analysts note that Russian state media and a significant number of Russian bloggers continued to fill the Russian information space with statements about the conflict between the federal government of Texas and the U.S.

ISW experts continue to believe that these claims are most likely part of a deliberate Russian information campaign.

Elections in the U.S.

The upcoming presidential elections in the U.S. are scheduled for November 5, 2024. The primary candidate for the Democrats is the incumbent American leader, Joe Biden, while for the Republicans - Donald Trump.

On December 28, Donald Trump's name was removed from the ballot in the primaries in the state of Maine. State Election Commission head Shenna Bellows emphasized that the decision was prompted by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Trump's team appealed this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, and judges have already begun reviewing the case. A decision is expected on February 8, and it is likely to have implications nationwide.

Meanwhile, Trump won the primaries in the states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
