MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. The West is likely to continue information attacks against Russia’s leadership and people, Irina Yarovaya, who chairs the security and anti-corruption committee at the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, said on Monday.
The Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published on Sunday some 11.5 million documents revealing "the offshore links of some of the planet’s most prominent people." The leak includes material on hidden financial dealings of a range of Russian legal entities and individuals. Authors of the investigation claim that these operations could be tied to associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but said that the Russian leader’s name is not actually mentioned in the files.
In comments to the ICIJ report, Yarovaya said: "The number of information attacks against the president of Russia and the simplicity of false stories is a multipole injection of poison with the hope that at least some dose will work. No doubt, Russian citizens are the subject of this encroachment."
The lawmaker said "the restless fathers of color revolutions" are troubled by "the political stability of Russia and the society’s trust in the president." There have been more information attacks of late as those behind them understand that there little time left to "demoralize the society and stir up the situation ahead of Russia’s elections."
However, the attacks have failed to achieve their key goal - "Russia continues living and working and the world still links the hopes for order and security with our president and the country," the lawmaker stressed.
