Fact check US: What is the impact of Russian interference in the US presidential election?

To understand concerns about the upcoming 2020 US elections, it is crucial to look back at the 2016 electoral cycle. As early as January 2017, a joint report by the CIA, FBI and NSA confirmed that there had been Russian interference in the 2016 election.

For the 2020 election, Russia appears to be once again favouring the election of Trump, this time over Joe Biden and the Democratic party, which it perceives as being unfriendly to Russian interests. It should be remembered that as vice president, Biden played a role in the policy of sanctions against Russia in 2014 following the annexation of the Crimea.

Russian interference continues to fuel tensions among Americans, adding uncertainty and undermining public confidence in the democratic electoral process.
