While experts continue to look for a future strategy and common ground in the Russia-US relations, US officials have become obsessed with debating Russia’s alleged meddling in the US presidential elections. In the meantime, President-elect Donald Trump came into direct confrontation with leading congressmen, who are to launch a wide-ranging investigation into Russia’s alleged activities, and intelligence agencies. According to the Washington Post and the New York Times, CIA changed its opinion and concluded in a secret assessment that Russia had not only interfered with the electoral process but also aimed at helping Mr Trump win the presidency. It is worth noting that ahead of the elections the US intel community did not find any connections between Trump and Russia, sharing a version that Russia’s aim was to undermine Americans’ faith in country’s democracy.
