Policymakers need to understand the intentions and motivations behind Russia’s attacks on democratic governments around the world if they’re going to effectively counter them. Intelligence agencies should produce an assessment of those intentions and what Russia’s next moves may be if the U.S. and NATO respond.
U.S. intelligence agencies have prepared assessments like these in the past and update them periodically, so there’s no need for Congress to specifically request a new assessment. The political intentions of Russia under Putin’s leadership should be clear given the meddling in Western elections along with its territorial grabs in Crimea.
