    Russian Influence and Austria's Far Right Before the 2022 Invasion of Ukraine

    In the years preceding Vladimir Putin's decision to stage a full invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Russia cultivated political influence in many European countries, including Austria. In this interview, recorded in 2021, Siegfried Beer, founder of the Austrian Center for Intelligence, Propaganda and Security Studies (ACIPSS), shared his insights on Russian influence in Austria and the Czech Republic, saying, "Right now, we have a situation that our far right parties feel a close connection with the Putin movement in Russia, and they even have, you know, cooperation they have, they have treaties, as it were contracts, in which they sort of support each other across across national interests and goals. So it's sometimes confusing. In the first one of the methods that the Russian propaganda state propaganda uses is trying to create influence among the political elites of a country."
