US probe of Russian election interference expands into CyprusA lawmaker probing Russian efforts to influence last year’s US presidential election said Friday he had traveled to Cyprus to investigate money laundering operations there that could have been utilized by the Kremlin. The Mediterranean country is where Russia is suspected of laundering millions of dollars as part of the election interference campaign. “It is essential for the Intelligence Committee to examine the nature and scope of Russian money laundering and how the use of offshore accounts, like those used in Cyprus, is one of many tools the Kremlin utilizes to exert undue influence abroad,” Quigley said in a statement released following his return to the United States.
