The British government has introduced a new position. It is called the minister for fighting the subversive activities of the Russian Federation against Western democracies.

The reason for the appearance of the new post was the increased number of hacker attacks. According to the British Prime Minister, Teresa May, this is due to the work of Russia’s information services.

Also, the British government suggests that the Russian Federation sponsors some political movements and parties in the territory of the Foggy Albion. And this can affect the results of the next elections in the UK.
