In some countries, Russia’s influence has become so widespread that it challenged national stability.

Russia launched a secret campaign of economic and political measures, to manipulate in the five countries of Central and Eastern Europe, discreditied the liberal-democratic model of the West and wants to blow up transatlantic link.

This is stated in the report, a private American research group, writes Reuters.

Moscow cute politicians who seek to dominate the energy markets and other sectors of the economy, which undermine measures to combat corruption in an attempt to gain power in governments of Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia, Serbia and Slovakia.

“In some countries, Russia’s influence has become so widespread that it challenged national stability and Western orientation of the countries and Euro-Atlantic stability,” the report says 16-month study of the Center for strategic and international studies in Washington and in Sofia, the Bulgarian center for the study of democracy.

She said that the Kremlin is trying to help the Republican candidate Donald Trump to win election to the White house. The U.S. government has officially accused Russia of hacking. Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected accusations of meddling in the election.

Add that officials and former employees of the US state Department agree with the conclusions about the participation of Russia in Eastern Europe. “Putin wants to undermine not only the credibility of NATO and the EU, but the entire democratic Foundation of both institutions,” said a us official.

The official, who requested anonymity, said that the White house had ordered officials not publicly discuss the hostile activities of Russia. These measures according to him include bribery, propaganda, disinformation, the “accidental” murder of Kremlin critics at home or abroad. Russia’s actions in relation to the extension of its influence in Central and Eastern Europe are very different: they vary from contract to 12.2 billion euros for the construction of two new nuclear reactors in Hungary, which will build a Russian “foggy” and to the cultivation of Pro-Russian businessmen who get political office, and then protect the interests of Moscow.

For example, in Bulgaria the economic presence of Russia is so strong that on average 22 percent of GDP in the period from 2005 to 2014.
