Whilst I have the podcast downloaded, I am curious as to why I should give a sh1t about Russian information operations; because if we don't look for evidence, there isn't evidence of successful information operations.
Which was apparently HMG policy as recently as last year.
Have you got a link for that? I recall hearing something along those lines, but I have no idea where. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Was it really official policy not to look, even when it was staring them in the face?
Look at the social media posts from a few years ago linking our decision (I think that there was a vote in parliament?) between expanding operations in Iraq to include terrorist targets in Syria, and refugees. Nothing to do with the Russians bombing places not held by Assad's forces and not bothering with precision weapons, of course.
Or the useful idiots in the media gullibly swallowing what "a source in Moscow" said about which NATO capabilities they worried about.
