This bill — the KREMLIN Act — would require the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to submit intelligence assessments about the goals and intentions of Russia’s political leadership to Congress. Assessments would be prepared about Russia’s potential military action against NATO members, potential responses to an enlarged U.S. or NATO military presence in eastern Europe, and potential areas where Russia could exploit divisions among Western governments.
Each assessment could be submitted in classified form, but would have to contain an unclassified executive summary. They would be provided to congressional committees with jurisdiction over the armed services, foreign affairs, and intelligence.
The bill’s full title is the Keeping Russian Entrapments Minimal and Limiting Intelligence Networks (KREMLIN) Act.
