Russia Falsely Accused of Hacking USAID

By Stephen Lendman | May 29, 2021

Virtually all accusations by Washington and its complicit partners against Russia and other nations free from US control lack evidence supporting them because none exists.

Yet they surface time and again, supported by Western press agent media.

On Friday, the Russophobic NYT was at it again, falsely accusing Moscow of hacking USAID.

In response to an earlier phony US accusation of Russian hacking last year, its US embassy said the following:

“We paid attention to another unfounded attempt of the US media to blame Russia for hacker attacks on US governmental bodies.”

“We declare responsibly: malicious activities in the information space contradicts the principles of the Russian foreign policy, national interests and our understanding of interstate relations.”

“Russia does not conduct offensive operations in the cyber domain.”

“What is more, the Russian Federation actively promotes bilateral and multilateral cyber security agreements.”

“In this regard, we would like to remind (the US regime) of the initiative put forward by President Vladimir Putin on September 25 on a comprehensive program of measures to restore Russian-US cooperation in the field of international information security.”

“We have received no reply from Washington.”

“Many our other suggestions to start constructive and equal dialogue with the US remain unanswered.”

Hacking and countless other crimes are how the US-dominated West and Israel operate.

In sharp contrast, Russia fully complies with its international obligations, according to the rule of law.

Yet once again, NYT fake news falsely claimed the following:

“Hackers linked to Russia’s main intelligence agency surreptitiously seized an email system used by (USAID) to burrow into the computer networks of human rights groups and other organizations of the sort that have been critical of President Vladimir V. Putin, Microsoft Corporation disclosed on Thursday (sic).”

When accusations are unsupported by independently verified evidence, they’re baseless.

None exists to support accusations against Russia under Vladimir Putin.

Will the latest phony one be used as a pretext to cancel a scheduled mid-June summit between Putin and Biden’s impersonator — because he can only recite lines scripted for him.

If held, the summit will be farcical — a know-nothing imposter engaging with a world leader of Putin’s stature.

Perhaps the latest phony accusation against Russia will be used to cancel it — to avoid US embarrassment if they meet face-to-face.

No Russian hack of USAID occurred, no evidence suggesting it.

What the Times indicated as the aim of the phony claim fell flat like earlier baseless accusations against Russia.

An invented scenario by the Times reads like a rejected grade B Hollywood script.

Corporate predator Microsoft is complicit with wars by hot and/or other means on invented US enemies.

So are the Times and other establishment media — operating as mouthpieces for US imperial interests on all things geopolitical, notably against Russia, China, and nations victimized by US aggression.

No phony NYT claim of Russian “malicious activity (or) appetite for disruption” against the US or other countries exists, no evidence suggesting it.

An unnamed DHS official falsely claimed that the agency was “aware of the potential compromise” at USAID (sic) and is “working with the FBI and (the State Department’s agency) to better understand the extent of the compromise (sic) and assist potential victims (sic).”

No Russian SolarWinds hack occurred earlier or other hacking it was falsely accused of earlier.

Yet Microsoft and the Times falsely claimed a Nobelium group in Russia hacked SolarWinds and USAID despite no verifiable evidence because there is none.

Time and again, Times reports don’t pass the smell test.

Its daily editions feature managed news misinformation, disinformation and fake news on major domestic and geopolitical issues — far removed from all the news it claims to be fit to print.

A Final Comment

Undemocratic Dem war goddess Samantha Power heads USAID.

Like other interventionist extremists, she never met a nation free from US control she didn’t want smashed.

She once called US foreign policy “a tool box” with a range of options to advance the nation’s hegemonic aims.

Civil rights lawyer Chase Madar earlier called her hellish agenda “a richly instructive example of the weaponization of human rights.”

Like other US hostile to the rule of law officials, she falsely blames others for its high crimes of war and against humanity.

Chances are she was behind the latest false accusation of Russian hacking, enlisting Microsoft to make the phony claim.

Her maliciously destructive worldview is polar opposite values just societies cherish.

  1. Aren’t the American people embarrassed that their “Elected” President is actually a brain dead idiot? And this allows the backroom boys like Pompeo, Blinken etc etc to control the USA Government?
    And the CIA remain in the background accusing Russia of all sorts of interference in the USA Government, when the real interlopers(Israel), already have full control of the USA Government.

    “Keeping Americans Safe” is just about as ridiculous as things get these days. The only way to “keep Americans Safe” now, is the “Pick up the shovel, and clean out the Barn” as someone said years ago!!
    The American Government is Rotting from within.

  2. I find it extremely ironic that the NYTimes would project USAID as its latest “victim” of Russian “hacking,” because aside from the fact that this is yet another story that can only be corroborated by the US‘s mendacious intelligence community, or its ubiquitous “anonymous sources,” they could not have chosen a worse subject to paint as victim. after all, given its role as financer of the US government’s initiatives to overthrow sovereign governments around the world, and to violate the electoral mandate of the Peoples that often elect those governments, USAID is hardly the paragon of respect for international law and other countries ’ sovereignty.

    Also, given that the US has boasted about having hacked Russian And Iranian military systems, isn’t it colossally ridiculous for them to accuse Russia of actions they themselves engage in? These Russian hacking accusations are as ridiculous as the accusations about Russia’s so-called meddling in US elections, especially considering that US foreign policy is littered with their subversions of other countries elections. Does their coup against the elected government of Salvador Allende in Chile in 1973 ring a bell? How about their continuous attempts to overthrow The elected Bolivarian Government of Venezuela? How about their intervention in Bolivia’s elections in 2019, and their overthrowal of the government of Evo Morales, who had one those elections? How about there overthrowal of the elected government of Zelaya in Honduras in 2008?

    So if the New York Times is going to insist on continuing to accuse Russia, it might want to look for sources other than the US intelligence agencies and “ Anonymous sources” to corroborate their stories, and they might want to find actions that the US isn’t it self guilty of, impossible as that may be.

    • Beautifully worded, and very accurate…….The hypocrisy of the American Government is staggering, but, regrettably, the American people seem to accept it, when they should be mocking it, and denouncing it for what it is, absolute Bull****…….

  4. I somehow missed this AN release when it was released on 5-29-21; glad to have been given the opportunity to go through it. Stephen Lendman is routinely among the best…his final-area takedown of the execrable Samantha Power is wonderful, spot-on. I came to detest that bit*c h when “R2P” [Responsiblity to Protect] became her mantra (2007ish?) as she moved from a decent human-rights career into the stinking bowels of the “elite” US Deep State (became, of course, Amb. to the UN) and was avid to bray “R2P” about Syria and other nations/cultures/societies functioning perfectly well on their own.

    Oh well — off my soapbox for now. Thanks to all commenters.
